Scam Alert

The City of Springfield has received a report indicating an individual approached a homeowner and identified themselves as a Springfield Water Department employee. They asked to enter the home to check the water. This was a hoax.

The City of Springfield reminds residents that any time city employees need to come to a person’s home or office they will always be wearing proper city-issued uniforms and identification and workers should arrive in a city-marked vehicle. If someone approaches a residence and says they are a city employee but do not have the proper credentials and are not in a city-marked vehicle, please contact the police immediately.

If you have any questions, please contact Central Dispatch to request assistance at 615-384-4911, or if you feel threatened please contact 911.
