Another week, another telephone scam has hit the Northwoods. This time officials at Wisconsin Public Service say scammers are upping the pressure to get you to pay a bill you don't owe.

Here's spokesperson Leah Van Zile....

".....scammers are contacting businesses and restuarants saying that they're going to be disconnected unless they make immediate payment with a prepaid credit card. That's something we'd never do, ask for immediate payment with a pre-paid credit card...."

Van Zile says if anyone has a question to go online to WisconsinPublicService.com or call their business office in Green Bay at 800-450-7260 to check on accounts. Van Zile says all customers should be on the look out for this telephone scam and never pay a bill with a pre-paid credit card as the scammer recommends.

Officials say hardly a week goes by without some new type of scam trying to take advantage of unsuspecting customers.
