Police Warn Of Area Phone Scam

Mason City, Iowa – Yesterday the Mason City Police Department released a statement to area residents: many area residents and business have reported getting threatening phone calls from someone claiming to be with Alliant Energy.

The caller threatens to shut off the resident’s or business utilities in 1 hr unless the person pays immediately over the phone.

Alliant does not operate this way.

Residents should never give out sensitive information to unsolicited callers or emailers.

If in doubt, check your account on line or contact the Alliant office first.
