Water customers have recently reported being solicited by scammers calling and asking for updated credit card information for water bill payments. Padre Dam staff will never call and demand credit card information or payment over the phone. In these recent cases it appears that Padre Dam phone numbers have been spoofed to appear as a call from Padre Dam when in fact it is not. In the field, Padre Dam staff will always carry an identification badge and drive a Padre Dam vehicle.
If you ever want to confirm identity of an employee in the field or on the phone, please contact Padre Dam directly at 619-258-4600.
