Fairfield residents have been targeted with a caller scam disguised as Alliant Energy.

According to the Jefferson County Attorney’s Office, the Fairfield Police Department has received information about a scam caller. The caller states they are with Alliant Energy, and the person being called is behind on their utility payment. The scammer threatens that if payment is not made immediately, the person’s utilities will be shut off. Alliant Energy is aware of the scam and has provided information to the Fairfield Police. They suggest that if you receive a call claiming to be from Alliant Energy, do not give the caller any financial information.
