GRU customers warned of potential scams
Gainesville Regional Utilities is warning its customers of ongoing scams concerning energy surveys. Customers have reported getting calls from an individual posing as a GRU employee. There have also been reports of a person coming to customers’ homes and asking for access inside to conduct a survey. GRU Spokesman Lewis Walton says this is unfortunately all too common this time of year.
He says there are some easy ways customers can watch for fraud.
He says if residents have any reason to be suspicious of an individual claiming to be from GRU, they can contact the company’s offices for verification.
