NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. – Nebraska City residents are being targeted by a scam trying to sell insurance or extend a warranty with Nebraska City Utilities.
The automated message asks to select certain numbers and prompt to make different choices.
Billing Clerk Chris Koperski says the utilities does not have a machine call customers or answer phones.
“We do not have a prompt system. If you call here, we have somebody answering the lines 24/7. If we call you, we’re going to call you as an individual. We’re not going to call you and prompt you to make choices.”
Koperski advises, if you receive one of these phone calls, to hang up and call Nebraska City Utilities at (402) 873-3353.
