Spire warns customers of a scam targeting residents in the Tuscaloosa area

Spire is raising community awareness of a recent scam impacting at least one resident in the Tuscaloosa area. 

In this scam, an unknown individual wearing an orange vest and claiming to work for Spire, knocked on the resident’s door and threatened to disconnect the customer’s natural gas service unless a payment was made immediately. The man had a handheld, credit card payment device, and unfortunately the homeowner used their credit card to make this false transaction. 

Spire does not request or accept any form of payment at a customer’s home or business. If a customer receives a visit from someone demanding immediate payment, or a suspicious phone call, they should contact Spire at 800-292-4008 to report the incident.
