Gainesville Regional Utilities warning customers of scam

By

Gainesville Regional Utilities is warning customers to beware of fraudulent checks and other scams. This warning comes after several customers deposited fake checks with GRU’s name. Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Hunt says three or four customers have tried to deposit the checks.

“The customers have been contacted with the fraudulent checks and have tried to deposit them. We are not aware of any others at this time, but we want to make sure our customers are very aware of the scam at this time.”

Hunt says GRU will never request a fee from customers to process refunds or rebates due to them. Also, GRU will never go door-to-door to deliver checks nor accept customer payments in the field. The Gainesville Police Department is currently working on the issue.
