At least one Roseville resident received a scam telephone call with an automated message, telling her that her credit card had been compromised, and asking her to “press 1 for more information.” The caller ID indicated that the call came from the City of Roseville.
She “smelled a rat”, hung up and reported the scam call to the City. Had she followed the instructions on the call, it’s likely she would have been asked to provide her credit card information to a scammer.
Roseville’s utility billing services have not experienced any security breach.

A handful of Roseville utility customers have reported receiving calls from someone claiming that they were from Roseville Electric Utility and that they were on their way to disconnect the customer's electricity due to a late payment. The caller demanded payment in the form of cash gift cards to keep the power on. This is a scam!
