The City of Amarillo is warning people about a scam involving payments for water, solid waste, sewer and drainage services.
The Utility Billing Department received tips from businesses about people pretending to be city employees and demanding money for city services or else those services would stop.
Earlier this month the department got new software that lets you pay bills automatically. During that transition period, the department has not assessed late fees or penalties and will not discontinue service due to non-payment.
If you are contacted by the scammers you are asked to call the Amarillo Police Department.
