FRANKENMUTH, MI (WNEM) -

The Frankenmuth Police Department has been getting fraud reports involving Consumers Power Company.

The caller, who sometimes uses the name “Robert” states they are an agent with Consumers Power and that you are behind on your bill.

The caller then says that Consumers Power is in the area and will be at your location within 40 minutes to disconnect the power unless a payment is made.

So far businesses are being targeted.

Numbers associated with the scam are: 307.344.3821. This number has also been tagged as a SCAM number and is located in Yellowstone National Park.

The caller in some cases is requesting the call recipient to call 800.509.9515 #1000 which is also tagged as a SCAM number and is listed to a teeth whitening establishment in Colorado.
