Avoid Electricity Related Scams

Protect yourself from energy-related fraud!

ComEd regularly receives reports of scammers posing as ComEd employees. These scammers go to great lengths to try and take your money. ComEd wants to help you be informed so you can protect yourself from fraud.

Scammers posed as ComEd employees may come to your home or business and request a payment. They could even call you from what appears to be a ComEd phone number. Always remember: ComEd will never call or come to your home or business to sell electricity or ask for personal information such as your account number, social security number, tax identification number or bank information. ComEd will never ask to see your bill or for you to make immediate payment in any form – by cash, check, prepaid cash card, or cryptocurrency such as bitcoin.

Don’t get scammed! If you experience suspicious behavior, call 1-800-EDISON-1 to report or visit ComEd.com/ScamAlert to learn more.
