A utility bill scam is being ran in the local area, Springdale police say.

The scam involves scammers calling residents and warning them that their electric bill is due and that they need to send money right away to keep their electricity from being shut off, according to a Springdale Police Department Facebook post.

“The company that is associated with the number is Entergy out of Georgia, which does not provide any services in this area,” the post states.

Police advise residents to not send money if they receive such a call.
