Village of Glen Ellyn alerts residents to telephone scam
GLEN ELLYN – The village of Glen Ellyn recently alerted residents to a telephone scam in which scammers threaten to disconnect utility services unless payment is received immediately.
The scammers use the name of ComEd, and payment is typically requested through some untraceable, non-refundable method, including Visa or other pre-paid cards, PayPal or wire transfers, according to an email newsletter from the village.
Residents who receive a call are advised to hang up and call ComEd at 800-EDISON-1 to confirm the disconnection. If further questions arise, residents should contact NIMEC (Northern Illinois Municipal Electric Collaborative) at 800-727-3820.
