From the Ponca City Police Department

Several small local businesses have called the Ponca City Utilities office and said they have received phone calls saying they are either behind on their electric bill or owe a meter deposit. All of the calls have come from out of state, according to Sherri Tapp, Utility Billing Manager. “We have not initiated any of these calls”, Tapp said.

Police Chief Don Bohon recommends if you are a Ponca City Utility customer and receive a similar call, whether you are a business or individual, that you end the call and contact the PCUA billing office yourself. “Don’t give bank account or credit card information to anyone over the phone that you did not initiate the contact with”, Bohon said.
