HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville Utilities wants customers to be aware of a person trying to steal money with a phone scam.

Targeted customers receive a call from the following number: 256-744-3669. The caller claims to be an employee of Huntsville Utilities and threatens customers with disconnection if the victim does not immediately pay over the phone or by prepaid card.
