SARTELL -- Sartell residents are asked to be on the lookout of a phone scam.

The Sartell Police Department says they have received a number of complaints of someone calling residents saying they are with the "Sartell Water Department" and asking for bank account information.

The caller states they are trying to collect on an overdue bill and to avoid having their water shut off must provide information so payment can be made.

The caller had a foreign accent and when pushed typically hangs up.

Police are reminding you to never give out banking information over the phone.

If you have received a similar call you're asked to contact the Sartell Police Department at 320-251-8186.
