DANBURY, Conn. – Danbury police are urging residents to be cautious of a phone scam involving a caller claiming to be from an electricity company, Detective, Lt. Tom Michael said.

The female caller knows the person's name and claims the utility bill for that address is overdue and electricity will be shut off the next morning unless the amount is paid immediately, police said.

The caller then requests a credit card or checking account number, Michael said. Police advise residents not to give out any personal information to unknown people.

Police also warn residents to be aware of “too-good-to-be-true” offers and package thefts this holiday season.

If you witness anything suspicious or receive a scam call, contact the police at 203-797-4611.
