Local police are warning area business owners and residents about a scam.

Several Grand Haven businesses reported receiving scam telephone calls Saturday from someone claiming to be a representative of the Grand Haven Board of Light and Power.

The caller was seeking credit card information “to settle an overdue bill,” according to Grand Haven Department of Public Safety Director Jeff Hawke.

The calls often originate from out of state, Hawke said.

In Saturday’s calls, the California number started with an 818 area code.
