Special Statement from the Hibbing Police Department:
There is a new twist to an old scam going on in the Hibbing area. Callers (the scam artist) are calling local numbers threatening them with disconnecting their utilities if they "don't make a payment" to a specified number. Hibbing Public Utilities DOES NOT call customers and "threaten" them with disconnections. THIS IS A SCAM!! If you have questions about your public utilities billing or account, please contact Hibbing Public Utilities during normal business hours at 218-262-7717 of 218-262-7734.
