The Wood River Police Chief says scammers have contacted a handful of city residents, and he wants to make sure you are not a victim.  Con artists are apparently calling residents, saying they are from the city’s finance department and need banking or credit card information in order to pay their water bill.

Police Chief Otis Steward says it doesn’t appear anyone has lost money.
