Heads up! New phone scam occuring in Beaufort County

1 min read

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 recently 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 their automated system. If you have concerns about the legitimacy of a call, please contact them at 843-987-9200.
