BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A national water line insurance scam has made its way to Calabash, according to the town clerk.

Residents and property owners targeted in the scam will receive a letter in the mail that their water lines are not insured. The company offers insurance for the lines for as little as $5 per month ($60 per year).

There is a form included in the letter to complete and return with a check or credit card information. You can elect to pay the entire amount or make the monthly payments.

According to Calabash Town Clerk Kelley Southward, this is a national scam attempting to gain access to your checking or credit card account.

You can always call your water service provider to double check your water lines do not need to be insured. Additionally, check the Better Business Bureau for details on the company offering the insurance.
