Scam Alerts!
The Green Bay Police Department has received reports of two different scams this past week. For more information, visit the Green Bay Police Department's Facebook page.
  • Two males are posing as Water Utility employees. They claim to need to check pipes inside the homes for sufficient flow due to a pipe breaking in the area. In some incidents, the victims later found they were missing money. The victims being targeted are either blind and/or older adults. If you ever have someone claiming to be from a utility needing to get inside your home, do not let them in, even if they appear to have a legitimate name tag. For more safety tips, read Shut the Door on Scams- Just Say No, an article written by ADRC staff.
  • Multiple residents & businesses have received phone calls claiming to be from WE Energies. The caller states they are behind in their energy bills and they are going to be shut-off. One business was instructed to call 1-800-381-9964 to make a payment. Although the phone number has an automated voice identifying it as We Energies, it is verified with We Energies that this is NOT one of their numbers. If you receive a suspicious phone call, do not answer. Never give any personal or financial information over the phone. Always find the number of the business on their legitimate website, or prior statements, if you are concerned about your account.
