Greer Commission of Public Works (Greer CPW) is warning customers about a phone scam when someone calls attempting to swindle money.
Customers of the company say they’ve received calls from someone claiming to be a Greer CPW employee.
The scammer claims that a disconnection can be avoided if the customers make a payment.
Greer CPW says it does not call to ask for personal or financial information and doesn’t call on weekends.
A customer who receives such a call is asked to hang up and call Greer CPW directly, (864) 848-5500, to check their account.
