Payment Scam

There is a current scam identified in the US affecting payments. It has someone communicating out to consumers about the Federal Reserve having a program that will assist them with their bills.  The consumers are instructed to use a Federal Reserve routing number and their social security number as the bank account.

Here is the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta press release.

Federal Reserve Routing numbers are not for consumer use.  Please do not respond to any emails asking you to use a Federal Reserve routing number.

Do not use DOXO.COM to pay your bill

Doxo.com is a third-party bill pay website that appears to be affiliated with the City of Redlands, but it is NOT.  Doxo.com allows people to pay their utility bills through their website, possibly charging the customer extra fees. The City cannot control when we receive the payment from Doxo.com, which could possibly result in accruing a late charge, and/or the payment may be posted to the wrong account.

Please do not use Doxo.com; instead, please use one of the options listed on our website to pay your utility bill.

Start or Stop Service

TO START WATER, SEWER OR TRASH SERVICE

The City of Redlands requires a pre-payment from all customers who have not established credit with the City. Established credit is defined as one year of service with a “satisfactory” payment record. “Satisfactory” is defined as making all payments on or before the payment due date. The pre-payment is based on a sum equal to three times the average or estimated monthly charges for the premise you are requesting services for.

The pre-payment will be credited to your account after one year of utility payments have been paid, provided a satisfactory payment record is maintained by paying all of your municipal services bills on before the due date. Application for service can be started over the telephone, but the pre-payment must be received prior to the start of service. 

The following information is needed to open an account: Social Security Number/Tax Payer ID Number, Drivers License Number, Telephone Number, Mailing Address, if different than the Service Address. If you are renting, we will need the Name, Address and Telephone Number of your landlord. We will also need the name of your Employer and their Telephone Number. To Start Service Now, Call 909-798-7516.

TO STOP WATER, SEWER OR TRASH SERVICE

To stop service on an account, you will need to contact the Customer Service Division and speak with one of our Customer Service Representatives. Pertinent information from the account will need to be verified and a forwarding address provided for the final closing bill and any possible credits. To Stop Service Now, Call 909-798-7516.
