Whiting Police Department is advising everyone that there is a telephone scam going around. The phone calls say it’s from NIPSCO and that your account has a delinquent balance and needs to be paid immediately. The scammers are leaving a call back phone number. PLEASE do not call back. You can contact NIPSCO’s 24-hour Customer Service number at 800-464-7726 to check the status of your account. Two of Whiting’s businesses have been targeted this week so far. If you happen to get a call regarding the scam or any other scam, Please call 911 to report it. Please be alert and spread the word.
