The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office would like to remind citizens to be extremely careful of persons calling their home claiming to be with a utility company and threatening to cut off services if they do not make a payment over the phone.
Recently we have received information from citizens that explain they have received a phone call from a person claiming to be with Georgia Power threatening to cut off power if they don’t make a payment over the phone. This is a scam. Georgia Power does not contact customers by phone and request payment.
If citizens receive a similar call they should not provide the caller with any personal information.
