NorthWestern Warns Customers About Collection Scam

Posted: Updated:

NorthWestern Energy wants to warn customers of yet another scam affecting our community. This scam involves the collection of overdue utility bills.

In the past week, scammers have targeted Billings, Great Falls, Helena and Bozeman, with customers losing more than two thousand dollars.

Here are some tips they suggest to keep you safe:

Be cautious when people seek payment information on your utility bills.

If you get a cancellation notification, always make sure it is verified.

Never give out any personal information unless you're "sure" you are working with NorthWestern.

Also keep in mind, that Northwestern will always provide several past-due notices before terminating your service. And they will never ask customers to use a prepaid debit card.
