MASON CITY, Iowa – Leaders with Alliant Energy are warning folks to watch out for some suspicious activity in our area.
The energy company has received two calls from residents in the area saying someone came to their businesses, claiming they were with Alliant Energy and needed them to pay their bill.
Justin Foss, a spokesman for Alliant Energy says that’s not something the company is doing, and it’s frustrating when these types of situations happen.
“Again, that was really the reaction. We’ve heard these calls through out the summer and in years past and its just, it’s maddening to know that these scammers are out there trying to take advantage of people,” said Foss.
Foss says they would never come to your door to collect money.
He asks customers to call police or Alliant if this happens to you.
