Scam Alert

Beware of a scam that has been reported to us Thursday, June 19th. Several Freeport businesses have been contacted by someone claiming to be from Com Ed. The person says that the business's electric bill is past due and a payment needs to be made immediately or else service will be turned off. The caller instructs the person to put money on a Green Dot card and then deliver it to a different location.

Com Ed does not do business that way and you should not follow any instructions to pay your bill in any other way than the ways you know to be legitimate. If in doubt about your bill or who is calling you, call Com Ed back at the number you know to belong to Com Ed and inquire further.
