BPUB receives over 500 reports of scam calls this week | #phishing | #scams | #hacking | #aihp



BROWNSVILLE, Texas (ValleyCentral) — The Brownsville Public Utilities Board urges its customers to exercise caution due to a recent increase in scam calls.

In the last few days, BPUB’s Call Center received roughly 500 calls from customers and other residents across the Rio Grande Valley reporting a call from a spoofed BPUB phone number, a BPUB news release states.

These scammers are spoofing BPUB phone numbers and threatening to disconnect customers and other residents to collect past due payments through third-party payment methods.

Scammers are able to distinguish their caller identification to make the caller ID appear to be a BPBUB phone.

The calls are spoofed using BPUB’s 956-983-6121 phone number.

According to the news release, when customers answer, they receive an automated Spanish-speaking voice message directing them to press one to speak to an agent.
