ComEd Phone Scam
The Lansing Police Department would like you to be aware
of a recent telephone scam that is being perpetrated in the area to our local business community. The offenders are calling from the phone number 888-959-9621 (or a similar set of numbers) and informing the businesses that they have 45 minutes to pay their electric bill or their power will be shut off.
This obviously is a scam and we want to warn business owners and residents to take no action if they receive a phone call similar to this. We urge business owners and residents to contact ComEd at the number listed on their bill if they have any direct questions so as to not fall victim to this scam.
