The Sycamore Police Department has received a couple of phone calls regarding possible scams happening once again. Businesses have received a call or message from someone claiming to be from Com Ed. The caller claims Com Ed will shut off its electricity in 30 minutes if the business does not pay a bill immediately. The caller then offers to take a credit card payment by phone.
Again, this appears to be a scam similar to something that occurred last Spring. Please do not give them any information and do not call them back.

They called me this morning at 8:20am. I answered and they said 3 sentences and I cut the guy off and started yelling at him for calling that early when my kids are sleeping. It wasnt even a comed number on my caller id so i knew it was B.s.
Can’t tell you how many scam calls we ignore, and we get a lot, on both of our cells and our landline. We don’t answer calls that are not recognized by caller id. If it’s important they can leave a message.
They called me yesterday… I had a lot of fun with him. He ended hanging up on me ððð
Don’t answer calls you do not recognize the number. Simple as that!
