The City of Neligh and Neligh Police Department would like to warn everyone of a new phone scam that has occurred in the area.
Officials said that a Neligh man was contacted by a man with a foreign accent claiming to be representing the city. He stated that the man was late on his utilities and needed to pay them otherwise risk being disconnected.
The man called city offices and learned that the call was in fact not from anyone truly representing the city.
The City of Neligh wants everyone to be aware of the scam. It has affected the Omaha area recently and now seems to have spread to Northeast Nebraska. If you receive a call from someone claiming to represent the city in such a manner, do not give them any money. Be aware that the city will not use a third-party source to make calls regarding someone's bills. Also, they will not call anyone in regards to their bill.
If you receive a similar call, report it to authorities immediately.
