BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Phone scams are a common tactic used by scammers to rob customers for their money. How can one tell if those calls are real?

The Brownsville Public Utilities Board is participating in Utilities Scam Awareness Week. This week-long campaign aims to educate customers on tactics used by scammers. As well as what they can do to not fall victim to the scams, especially around the holidays.
