Electrical Aggregation Phone Scam

posted Dec 7, 2012, 12:13 PM by Brian Donahoe
Has been noted in the Mundelein area. An unknown caller, claiming to be a representative of ComEd, told the resident that due to a switch in electrical suppliers, a fee had to be paid immediately to prevent disconnection of service. Please note that ComEd does not typically require a fee for transfer of suppliers and that there is no fee for participating in the Village's electrical aggregation program. The Police Department advises residents receiving any type of solicitation requiring immediate payment in order to avoid disconnection of a utility service to not make payment and immediately contact the non-emergency police line at 847-968-4600 to make a police report. If you are unsure if the caller is tryly a ComEd representative, ask them to provide you with your account number. Only real ComEd representatives would have access to that information. Anyone with questions is encouraged to call the Mundelein Police Department.
