Beware of holiday utility scams

ANAHEIM...Scammers don’t take a break during the holidays. In fact, we usually see an increase in suspicious activity this time of year.

Many times, scammers will call and pose as someone with Anaheim Public Utilities and demand immediate payment on your account, ask for your personal information or threaten service disconnection.

Always know, Anaheim Public Utilities will never demand immediate payment or payment through a prepaid card or third party app, and we’ll never call to ask for your personal information over the phone.

If you suspect a scammer is on the line, hang up and report the call to Anaheim Public Utilities by calling the number on your utility bill or dialing 311 when in Anaheim.

If you need assistance paying your utility bill, Anaheim Public Utilities stands ready to help. Visit for more information.
