Okatie, SC (May 12, 2015, 6:00 PM.)- Beaufort-Jasper Water and Sewer Authority (BJWSA) is alerting its customers to what is an apparent scam involving phone calls from someone posing as a representative of a local water company. BJWSA has been informed of three different cases today that targeted its commercial customers where the person stated they were calling from either “BJWSA,” “your local water department,” or “city utility.” In these three cases the person stated the customer’s water would be turned off unless a payment is made.

BJWSA makes courtesy calls through our automated system. If you have concerns about the legitimacy of a call, please contact us at 843-987-9200.
