LCSO: Callers pretending to be utility company

The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office has received calls from Liberty County citizens saying they have gotten telephone calls from what represents themselves as their local power company claiming the resident has not paid their recent power company bill or the bill has arrived late.

The residents say they are being told by the scammers that they need to send in a certain amount of money immediately or their power to their homes will be cut off.

The LCSO has also received information from a very reliable Montgomery County source that several of their citizens in Montgomery County are also receiving similar calls.

“If these two counties are receiving such calls, it is a safe bet that other areas are receiving similar calls as well,” said Capt. Ken DeFoor, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office.

DeFoor said these calls are scam and citizens should not respond to them.

“The resident should call their respective power company at their standard telephone number to confirm any such calls or late or no payment. Such scam calls should also be reported to your local law enforcement agency,” he said.

If you have been targeted in this potential scam, call the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office at 936-336-4500 or the local law enforcement agency in your area.

  1. It’s probably “Terrenos Houston~ Satff memembers scamming ” That’s what they do best with their affiliates, but I have received dozens of calls from this number NRB & associates claiming That I owe them a debt . They were very rude and cursed at me and threatened to shoot me with a “Glock ” They even called my cousins and other family numbers and stated my social security number and previous addresses. and they blew a fog horn into the phone when I called the number back (402)-937-8598 . i called them back to back hundreds of times non stop . To play their game, it must have worked . caused they stopped calling lol ! but now I’m getting calls from spanish speaking females claiming i owe them money and they will come to my house to ” collect” from 281 area codes starting at 5 am in the morning. and be very rude to me , even claiming they paid me for work that i never did . then finally I called back 1 of the numbers that they called from and it was a male hispanic with a mexican accent from Terrenos Houston trying to sell me a trailer with land. I already own land in colony ridge …. That I was scammed on . They even sold or stoled my identity to their illegal immigrants that they traffic and smuggle in to our community
