SPRINGFIELD — Federal investigators are aiding Springfield City Utilities after it fell victim to a phishing scam.

A spokesperson for City Utilities says this was not a data breach, and that no customer information was affected.

City Utilities found out late Thursday that information for about 1,000 employees was obtained through the scam. Employees were alerted Friday of the incident.

The spokesperson says the city is working with those employees to help secure identity theft protection. The FBI is helping with the investigation.
