LCU Warns of Possible Scam
Fort Myers, FL, Feb. 15, 2017 – Lee County Utilities (LCU) has received reports of a person imitating an LCU employee who claims to be there to shut off their water for nonpayment. The person tells the customer if they pay, they will avoid having their water shut off at that time.
This is not authorized by LCU. Anyone who encounters this situation is encouraged to call the Lee County Sheriff's Office Fraud Alert Hotline at
LCU customers are notified in advance by mail for past due payments prior to field staff coming to the property to turn off water service. If you are approached by someone demanding payment and have not received prior notification, ask for their Lee County identification or call our Customer Service Center at
239-533-8845. LCU field staff will never ask for payments in the field.
To help identify LCU Meter Readers, they will be
driving a white LCU vehicle and
wearing the approved uniform.
Policy Change- Same Day Service
Lee County Utilities offers same-day service to turn on water if your documents to establish an account are
12:00 p.m. (The time due for same-day service was changed effective Feb. 1, 2017.)
