Lakeway MUD is warning residents of a possible scam recently brought to their attention using the City of Lakeway name. A postcard claiming it’s the ‘final notice’ of a package shipment ended up in the mailbox of one of its customers. When the recipient called the number, they were told the company had been hired by the City of Lakeway to test their water. The company offered to give a $25 gift card if they would allow them to come into their home and conduct the test. The customer hung up on them and called LMUD to verify the information, which ended up being untrue.
Please note: There is no outside company hired to do any water testing for the City of Lakeway or Lakeway MUD. If you receive one of these notices, please contact the City of Lakeway or Lakeway MUD immediately. Always be cautious if anyone asks to enter your home and verify the source beforehand. If you have any concerns or feel threatened by someone wanting to enter your home, contact your local police department.
