Warning: Atmos Energy Scam

The Granbury Police Department is warning residents not to trust utility calls demanding payment. Two scam calls have been reported to the police department. The scammer claims to be from Atmos Energy and claim that the natural gas provider was unable to process payments. Residents are instructed to go to a local pharmacy and wire money. Victims were told their gas would be turned off if they did not comply. Authorities recommend getting a call back number and then calling the regular utility company number to verify the call.
