(Des Moines) Scammers attempting an old chestnut in the metro apparently.  Polk County Sheriff's Lieutenant Jana Abens says a company got a call recently from someone threatening to shut off the power unless a bill was paid immediately through a Walgreens Green Dot MoneyPak.  But, Abens says the person who answered the phone did the right thing: hung up and called the utility herself.

But, Lieutenant Abens warning spoofers wouldn't keep trying the old utility scam if someone somewhere wasn't losing some money.
