ERMU staff has been notified of a few utility scams that seem to be targeting the Elk River area. An unknown party is contacting our customers by phone claiming to be from the "utility company" or sometimes going as far as to referring to neighboring utilities' names. They are asking for credit card information to make a payment. Be aware that ERMU would never call a customer and insist on payment by credit card. Please contact our office at 763.441.2020 if you ever receive this type of solicitation.
