  • *** Gainesville Regional Utilities has advised BBB that they have no involvement in or relationship with GRU Financial. ***

    Gainesville Regional Utilities has advised the BBB that they been the victim of a fraudulent check scam. GRU Financial has mailed letters to consumers in various regions of the USA that tell the consumer they have won a large sum of money. The letter contains a check that appears to be from Gainesville Regional Utilities. Consumers are told this is an advance on their winnings and is to be used to pay taxes. The consumer is instructed to deposit the check into their personal bank account and then send a money gram to an address in Canada to pay the supposed “taxes”. Gainesville Regional Utilities has advised BBB that they have no involvement in or relationship with GRU Financial. The checks issued by GRU Financial against the account of Gainesville Regional Utilities are counterfeit and will be returned unpaid to the depositor. The consumer will lose the funds used to pay for the money gram.
