CHEYENNE, WY – A customer of the City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (BOPU) reported receiving a telephone scam where the caller claimed to be from Cheyenne’s water and sewer department. The fraudulent caller claimed that the customer was delinquent on their water bill and would be shut off if the customer did not make a payment immediately.

The BOPU encourages customers to be vigilant against phone and identity scams. Customers who have concerns about callers claiming to represent the BOPU should hang up and call the BOPU at (307) 637-6460. Customers may also visit the BOPU at 2416 Snyder Avenue.

The BOPU reports fraudulent calls to Cheyenne’s Police Department. Using caller ID, make note of the originating phone number, date, time, and other details of the call so they can be conveyed to the Police Department.
