The better business bureau is warning of a returning scam -- the one where someone pretending to be a utility provider calls and says your service will be cut off if you don’t pay your bill.  Then they try to make you use a weird payment form like a wire transfer or prepaid debit card.  Legitimate companies don’t do that; so if someone is trying to scam you, let the police know.
