Warning! Moorhead Public Service Scam

Posted: Updated:
Moorhead Public Service warning customers about scam calls that are showing up around the area. They say customers are receiving calls with "Moorhead Public Service" in the caller ID and the caller is asking for payment information. They want everyone to know this is not them and to be aware. Here is the text of the press release that was just issued:

"Moorhead Public Service (MPS) is warning customers of a payment scam. MPS has been notified that a customer received a telephone call with “Moorhead Public Service” in the Caller ID and the caller is attempting to obtain financial information from the customer. This telephone call appears to be from “Moorhead Public Service,” but the caller states he/she is calling from “the courthouse” regarding past due parking fines. The caller then demands payment over the phone on past due parking fines. This call is NOT from Moorhead Public Service. We believe this call is a scam.

MPS contacts customers with past due balances by phone to offer payment options; however, MPS does NOT demand direct payment over the telephone.  

If you receive a call such as the one described above, please do not provide the caller with any financial information."
