MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Southeast Morris County Municipalities Authority (SMCMUA, Morris Township's Water Authority) provides drinking water to customers in Morris Township, Morris Township, Morris Plains, and Hanover Township.
The SMCMUA is alerting customers to an ongoing scam that has occurred in Washington, D.C. Individuals are pretending to be from the water authority and are contacting residents offering discounts. Residents will be asked for account information, presumably to steal credit card information.
If residents receive a call from someone saying they are from SMCMUA, the water company is advising that residents hang up and contact the SMCMUA directly. Residents are encouraged to call the SMCMUA at 973-326-6880 if they are unsure whether the call is legitimate or not.
