***PHONE SCAM ALERT*** Our department has recently learned of a new phone scam targeting elderly residents. Victims have received calls from (312)664-0590, and the callers are pretending to be employees of ComEd. Caller ID identifies the number as Cruise One-Chicago, IL. When you call back this number, you will hear a ComEd recording. THIS IS NOT A LEGITIMATE ComEd NUMBER. Callers are telling residents that they are late on payments and requesting residents to purchase reloadable credit cards threatening to turn off residents power if they don’t comply. DO NOT give out personal information to anyone over the phone! Contact our department for further questions.

Even a little alcohol is too much when you’re going to drive. This #StPatricksDay remember #DriveSoberIllinois

As you head out to celebrate this #StPatricksDay, remember: #DriveSoberIllinois. Make a plan to get home safely BEFORE going out. Don't become a statistic this #StPatricksDay. #DriveSoberIllinois
