Beware of any calls you get allegedly from Southwest Gas. The utility is warning the public about an ongoing phone scam.

Southwest Gas has received several reports of people claiming to be employees, calling customers and demanding a payment. 

Remember, Southwest Gas will not call to ask for credit card information, for customers to purchase pre-paid debit cards for payment, or for cash transfers.

And employees typically only visit a home based on a customer request. Any employee who visits a property will always carry the appropriate identification and company uniform.

Customers with questions about their account should call Southwest Gas Customer Assistance at (877) 860-6020.
