Benton Utilities desires to notify residents and businesses in our area of a scam going on.  An unknown company is calling, texting and emailing utility customers identifying themselves as a Benton Utilities employee demanding payment or be shut off.  These people provide a “case” number.  When the customer asks for a phone number to return the call, it usually results in the caller hanging up.  If the caller gives a number, it may be a 1-800 number for a utility service provider in another state.  This establishment is not in any way affiliated with the City of Benton nor Benton Utilities.
