THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — Another new scam is circulating in the Delta. Several Clarksdale businesses have received calls from someone claiming to represent Clarksdale Public Utilities asking them to pay an outstanding balance in cash, either via Western Union or at a location other than the CPU office. Reports have also come from Bolivar and Washington Counties with people claiming to represent Entergy Mississippi. If you have a bill to pay be sure to go directly to the company’s website or stop by one of their offices for payment. Do not send payments through Western Union.
