PhoneScam 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (8/7/18) — Madisonville Police Department reported today they have received information about a local phone scam.

Lt. Andy Rush indicated an unknown caller has been contacting businesses in the area claiming they are “late on their payments for electricity to the Madisonville Municipal Utilities.”
