Citizens of Springfield are receiving calls from an 800-number telling them that they had 30 to 45 minutes before their electricity would be cut off. When pressed for information, they were told to go to CVS on Memorial Boulevard to make a payment. The phone number being used is 800/646-0674.
The City of Springfield does not call citizens and demand payment for any reason. Please hang up on these scammers and report the number to the Police Department.
