The Hawai‘i Police Department is warning the public to beware of a telephone scam by people claiming to be from the Department of Water Supply.

The scammers call Water Supply customers claiming their water bill is past due and threaten to shut off their service.

The calls are fraudulent and are an attempt to get credit card information, according to the Department of Water Supply.

The public is asked to report a call, should they receive one, to the HPD’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.

Additional reports may be filed with the Department of Water Supply’s office at 961-8050.
