02/21/2019- It’s another phone scam targeting our area. The Marinette County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve received complaints from businesses getting phone calls that offer them the opportunity to pay their Wisconsin Public Service utility bill at a reduced rate using pre-paid gift cards. Officials say this is a scam and is reminding residents that companies and government agencies will never ask for payments via gift cards. Anyone who receives ones of these calls should hang up immediately and contact the Sheriff Department using their non-emergency line.
