Fairhaven Police are warning local businesses of another phone scam in their area.

Police say some businesses in Fairhaven and surrounding communities have received a phone call from a man saying their electricity will be shut off within the hour because they owe money to NStar Electric.

The caller then says the business owner must call him at a given phone number to provide payment.

Police are warning anyone receiving a similar call to not provide any information, and to contact their utility company directly to inquire about their account status, if needed.
