11 May WE Energies Scam Alert

– This week, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has seen a spike in contacts from Wisconsin businesses who received threatening phone calls about their utility accounts from imposters claiming to represent We Energies.  Small businesses and consumers alike should be on the lookout for these phony calls. Scammers are calling businesses and threatening them with disconnection of services unless an immediate payment is made.  While the most recent reports to DATCP have been about contacts from fake We Energies representatives, this is a very common scam and con artists will claim to work for whatever utility company services the area they are targeting. Regardless of your utility provider, if you receive a similar threatening call about your home or business utility account, hang up and do not engage the caller.  Contact your utility provider directly using information from your billing statement to inquire about the status of your account and to report the call. Avoid being tricked in a utility scam by remembering these simple guidelines: Utility companies will contact you by mail if your account is overdue.  They may also call you if your services are at risk of being terminated, but will NEVER demand immediate payment over the phone. If a caller demands a utility payment by prepaid debit card or wire transfer, it is a scam. Scammers can manipulate your caller ID display to show the local utility company's name or number when they call. For additional information or to file a complaint, visit the Consumer Protection Bureau at http://datcp.wisconsin.gov, send an e-mail to datcphotline@wisconsin.gov, or call the Consumer Protection Hotline toll-free at 1-800-422-7128....

11 May Click It or Ticket

Date: May 10, 2017 The Lake Mills Police Department will join hundreds of other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin for the annual Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement campaign from May 22 to June 4. Whether you’re a driver or a passenger, wearing a safety belt is the single most important step you can take to protect yourself every time you travel. During the Click It or Ticket mobilization and throughout the year, the Lake Mills Police Department’s goal is not to write citations. Through enforcement and education, we want to prevent injuries and deaths by encouraging everyone to buckle up every day, every trip. Although the state’s safety belt use rate of 88.4 percent is the highest ever, nearly half of the drivers and passengers killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes last year were not wearing safety belts. In addition, last year there were over 68,500 convictions for failure to fasten a seat belt. By buckling up, you’re protecting yourself from being ejected during a crash or thrown around violently inside a vehicle. For our officers, Click It or Ticket is more than a slogan. It’s about preventing injuries and saving lives. Sergeant Witte Lake Mills Police Department awitte@ci.lake-mills.wi.us ...
