Douglas County PUD is warning the community about scammers targeting customers.

Douglas PUD was notified this week of a customer who received a letter from Home Warranty Solutions stating that the customer's warranty, to which 'Public Utility District #1' is the lender, has expired. The letter goes on to say that the potential victim must purchase a new warranty right away.

Public Information Officer Meaghan Vibbert said, "Douglas PUD doesn't provide home warranties and we are not affiliated with that letter or the company who sent them out."

Vibbert added that if you receive a similar letter, contact either Rivercom's non-emergency line at (509) 663-9911, Douglas County PUD, or simply just throw it away.
