Beware of Utility Scams
There have been reports of three utility scams.
1. Phone Scam: Some of our customers have reported that they received a phone call from an employee at Waupun Utilities demanding payment or else their electricity would be disconnected. This is a scam. Do not give anyone money over the phone. Waupun Utilities will always notify you with a tag on your door 24-48 hours prior to a scheduled disconnection. We will not call you and demand payment. If you are unsure if a phone call is legitimate, please hang up the phone and contact our office at 920-324-7920.
2. In-Person Scam: Other cities in Wisconsin have had reports of individuals posing as utility workers from local utilities or power companies attempting to gain access and burglarize residences. Waupun Utilities will never come to your home and demand payment for services. If someone comes to your house demanding payment for tree trimming, outstanding bills, or any other utility services, please call our office to verify their identity or ask to see their Waupun Utilities ID card. DO NOT let them into your home until you have verified their identity.
3. New Phone Scam: We have received a report of a new phone scam. Someone that claims to be with We Energies calls and says that now We Energies handles disconnects for Waupun Utilities and requires payment to avoid disconnection of your service. This is definitely a scam. Waupun Utilities is NOT affiliated with We Energies. We handle our own disconnects and we do not disconnect after hours, unless there is an emergency.
If you would like to file a report about one of these scams, please contact our office or the Waupun Police Department at (920) 324-8807.
