(WHAS11) -- The Indiana Attorney General's office is warning homeoweners in Indiana about a personal identity scam. They say the scam claims to be a new federal program that pays your utility bills in exchange for personal information.
Victims say they were told credits would be put on their bills if they release their social security number or bank account information.
The victims were then given fraudulent bank information to use when paying their bills online.
People who believe they may be a victim should contact the Attorney General's Office.
