VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Police in Vigo County have a warning for you.

The Vigo County Sheriff's Office has received multiple reports of a scam targeting Duke Energy customers.

Deputies say the callers claim you have an outstanding balance on your bill...and then threaten to disconnect your service if you don't pay.

They are requesting payment in the form of gift cards.

That request is a red flag that the call is a scam.

Police say always check the number if you don't recognize it.

You can report scam calls anytime to the Triad Scam Line at 812-231-1430.
