The Aberdeen Police Department has received reports of calls to residents from numbers that show as “Town of Aberdeen”. There is a possible scam saying they are with the Water Dept.
Do not give any information over the phone especially any credit card or bank information. The Town of Aberdeen Water Department and Public Works will never ask for any type of payment or credit card/bank account information over the phone.
Never let any unidentified individual into your home. Town employees do not enter residences, they only do work on the water meter which is located near the street. All Town of Aberdeen Water Department/Public Works employees will be driving a white truck with Town of Aberdeen markings on the sides and in a Town of Aberdeen uniform.
If you have any questions about the call, hang up and call the Water Department directly at 910-944-1115. Or to report any suspicious calls to the Aberdeen Police Department, call Deputy Chief Colasacco at 910-944-4566.
