DANVILLE, Va. -

Pay your bill or get disconnected.

At least that's what scammers, pretending to be from Danville Utilities are telling several restaurant owners.

The scammers ask owners to immediately pay the current bill online or risk losing electricity.

Danville Utilities tells WDBJ7, the company never calls businesses demanding money, it only sends warning letters.

It also reminds business and homeowners to never give out sensitive information over the phone or online.
