Big Island police are warning the public to be on the lookout for a scam involving utility bills.

A Hilo woman reported receiving a phone call from someone posing as a representative of Hawaii Electric Light Co.

The caller claimed the woman’s bill was overdue and threatened to shut offer her electricity unless she made a payment.

Police cautioned the public not to respond to requests for information or payments that come by telephone or through the internet.

Any such contact should be followed up by calling  HELCO’s number in the phone book, not any number that may be received over the telephone or internet.
