Frequently Asked Questions

I got a call saying my power would be cut off. Am I being scammed?

Periodically, phone scammers call Nixa Utilities customers threatening to cut off utility services unless payment is made immediately over the phone or using gift cards. This is a scam.

If you are truly behind on your Nixa Utilities bill payments, we will send paper notices by mail (as well as email notifications if you have signed up for those) notifying you that your bill is past due and that if you do not pay on time, your utilities services will be turned off. Nixa Utilities does not currently call customers when they are past due. Also, we NEVER accept gift cards as a form of payment.

If in doubt, HANG UP. Do not make payment over the phone unless you called our real number 417-725-3229. You can also hang up if a caller says your payment is late, and then call us to see if your account is truly past due. Or, check your account online using NixaPay or myNixa.

Know the difference between a legitimate past-due notice and these threatening scams and be sure to warn vulnerable loved ones.


Nixa Utilities uses National Recovery Agency to collect outstanding balances on utility accounts that are aged more than 180 days. When they seek to collect a debt for Nixa Utilities, they will reference your actual Nixa Utilities account number. If you are contacted by National Recovery Agency, be aware this is indeed a legitimate debt collection attempt. They may call you or use other methods to contact you in order to collect the debt.
