Moorhead Public Service warns customers of payment scam


MPS uses automated messages for its collection process and contacts customers with past due balances by phone to offer payment options; however, MPS does NOT demand direct payment over the telephone and does NOT use threatening tactics to obtain payment.

Any call demanding direct payment over the telephone and/or using threatening tactics to obtain payment is NOT a call from Moorhead Public Service. This call is a scam – do NOT provide any financial information.

Moorhead Public Service (MPS) is warning customers of a payment scam. MPS has been contacted by numerous customers who have received suspicious telephone calls from individuals or automated messages attempting to collect payment.

If you receive a call claiming to be from Moorhead Public Service that seems suspicious, please do not provide any financial information. Please hang up and call our office at 218.477.8000, Option 4.
