According to an Aberdeen Police Department news alert, the department has received at least two reports of calls to residents from numbers that show Town of Aberdeen. This may be a possible scam saying they were from the water department.
Do not give any information over the phone especially any credit card or bank information. The Town of Aberdeen Water Department and Public Works will never ask for any type of payment or credit card/bank account information over the phone.
Never let any unidentified individual into your home. Town employees do not enter residences, they only do work on the water meter which is located near the street. All Town of Aberdeen Water Department/Public Works employees will be driving a white truck with Town of Aberdeen markings on the sides and in a Town of Aberdeen uniform.
Aberdeen Police Department is advising the community to verify any water department business by calling 910-944-1115.
