Phone Scams

Covina senior citizens have reported receiving calls from persons claiming to be IRS employees, and providing instructions on how to send money owed to the IRS. No government agency will ever contact you by telephone demanding wire transfer or pre-paid debit card payment for monies owed. The best method of dealing with phone scam attempts is to hang up on the caller. If you don't allow them to hook you, they will move on.

Covina Water Utility customers have also reported a water payment scam operation. Unknown subjects have made calls to some Covina Water Utility customers stating that the customer has a high water usage on their account, creating a so-called violation. The callers identify themselves as employees, and threaten to come to the resident's home to collect a $500 fine for water violations. 

The City of Covina has a process in place to provide warnings, before a graduated citation process is initiated. Fines begin at $50 per violation, with a maximum fine of $250 per violation for repeat violators. If a customer receives a citation, the citation amount is added to your water bill. No Water Utility employee will ever arrive at your door and ask for direct payment of a fine. For additional information please contact Global Water Fathom at (855) 354-7579 or the City of Covina Public Works (626) 384-5230. If you are victim of a water payment scam in the City of Covina, please contact the Covina Police Department 24 hours dispatch at (626) 331-3391.
