Groton Utilities is repeating a warning to customers about a phone scam from callers claiming to represent Groton Utilities and/or the City of Groton. These callers are asking for payment on the phone in order for you to avoid utility service termination. The callers target local businesses and ask the business owner to make a payment directly with the caller.

If you receive such a call please ask for the caller's name and number and call them back to verify that the call is indeed from Groton Utilities. Please do not give financial information to anyone on the phone before assuring that the call is legitimate. If you are unsure at all simply call GU at 860-446-4000 to verify the legitimacy of a call.
