DENVER -- Denver Water is alerting customers about a new scam. Officials said Tuesday crooks are calling customers and demanding money.

The water utility said the scammer tells the customer they owe money and then tells them to call back on a different number to clear up the discrepancy as soon as possible.

"In some cases they did sort of have a convoluted scheme of what the person needed to do to submit the payment so hopefully that will also trigger red flags for people but in general we just want people to be very mindful of what could happen and let them know we're not going to call you and ask for payment," a Denver Water spokeswoman said.

If you get the scam call, Denver Water would like to hear from you.
