Another day, another scam to look out for. Scum of the earth, I tell ya. 

The incident was first reported by a Flint resident who said that they received a phone call from a person who claimed to be a city employee, who asked them to provide their credit card number to avoid having their water shut off.

City officials say that legitimate city representatives will never ask for financial information over the phone or email, and likewise, you should never give it out.

If you've experienced something like this, you're encouraged to call City of Flint Customer Service Center at 810-766-7470 to report it.
