Locked Out Neighbor Scam

Just had someone ring my doorbell, then jiggle my doorhandle, and when I answered (a minute later) he was on his way down my steps, but started into a short shpeel about being my neighbor from across the street and being locked out. I was standoff-ish, so he scurried off, but the while thing was so strange that I called the police to do a driveby. Afterward I did a quick Google search which led me to another post on...

Just had someone ring my doorbell, then jiggle my doorhandle, and when I answered (a minute later) he was on his way down my steps, but started into a short shpeel about being my neighbor from across the street and being locked out. I was standoff-ish, so he scurried off, but the while thing was so strange that I called the police to do a driveby. Afterward I did a quick Google search which led me to another post on their site from the North Center neighborhood.

So this guy's definitely a scammer. Just search this site for "neighbor in distress" and read the posts. Wanted to start a new post here since it appears the scammer is now starting to target the Lakeview neighborhood.

From the other posts, it appears the guy is after a few bucks, but who knows when that starts to escalate.

Guy was white, about 6', short hair, medium-light brown, maybe 50 years old. Wore a black leather jacket.

    We live in Lincoln Park and my wife has had this happen to her (same guy) twice when she was at home in the middle of the day. The guy in her case claimed his wife was pregnant and in labor but he had lost his keys or something like that. The guy was quite aggressive. Don't open your door and call 911.

    If you offer to call 911 for an ambulance the buzzer will never go off again.

A Lakeview woman was beaten in an armed robbery early Wednesday morning by a man whose jacket retails for over $1,000.

Police and a fire department ambulance met the victim near the crime scene at Lakewood and Henderson shortly after 3AM.

She told them that the offender took her purse, which contained a cell phone and other items, before fleeing southbound on Sheffield toward Belmont.

The robber is described as a black man, 5'9" tall, and 150 pounds. He wore a distinctive red Pelle Pelle brand letterman jacket with white lettering and "sequins" on the back.

Other officers and even the ambulance driver reported that they saw the offender minutes before the robbery call came in—once at the Subway restaurant near Belmont and Clark and again walking eastbound on Buckingham Place near Halsted.

Unfortunately, officers were unable to locate the man after the robbery was reported.

The incident is recorded as an armed robbery in CPD case HX468088.

Police Activity at 555 Cornelia Ave

Hey guys! I've been trolling the internet and EveryBlock trying to figure out what the heck happened but at about 5am on 12/4 (thursday morning) I walked out of my place and there were GOBS of police vehicles pointed in every which direction on Cornelia and Pine grove at that T in the road and had the street blocked off for like 6 hours. Seemed like there was a body on the ground beneath the balconies but I never heard any sirens or ambulances.... any one know what happened?

    I'm not saying they don't have their place. Just don't locate them in a predominantly residential neighborhood. You have my blessing to party until 4am in places like the Las Vegas strip or New Orlean's french quarter.

Found white and tan cat

I found a short haired, white and tan cat matching that description yesterday on the 1300 block of Wellington. It was super friendly and followed me home. Clearly someone's pet because he is very well fed. I took him to Urban Vet immediately and there's no chip. I've posted online and put up signs. He's in our living room and sweet as can be.

Just seen heading west toward Masonic on wellington wearing maroon scrub pants (45 min ago), so he may work there; or live across the street in the rehab program or very nearby.
He and the other taller guy, both in trech coats, were going around the block on foot Sun night about 9-10pm (Barry -kemore-Belmont-fletcher)and dissapeared just south of belmont on fletcher.
If you were a victim of the crime I suggest asking security at Illinois Masonic if they know the guy. -Might be transport, tech or maintenance. If he is the perp doing the crime he'll be easily id'd.
-the problem is getting the police there fast

  • I have lived in my neighborhood for most of the last 23 years, and other than my close neighbors, I couldn't tell you who "belongs" here and who does not (if we're going solely by looks and not actions). And there are fewer people (more SF homes) around here than Belmont & Seminary. I find it more than a little hard to believe that you know everyone in the neighborhood.

Lost cat - $1,000 reward

My cat, Mila, has been missing for three months. She was last seen in Lakeview near Lakewood and Diversey. We have set up a Web page for her, which includes a downloadable poster, a photo gallery and information on the look-alike cats in the neighborhood: http://danielleg.com/mila. REWARD: $1,000

  • I was just driving west down the alley (from Southport) between Oakdale and George and a cat with similar markings to Mila darted in front of my car and into the heavy brush/bushes in the southwest corner of the parking lot located on the corner of Oakdale and Southport (the old ZDE). I cannot be sure that it was Mila but figured it best to pass along the information.

  • Thanks. I will head over there now.

Collecting Donations For Shelter Animals

As a volunteer at the Chicago ACC, I spend a lot of time with shelter animals who fight to keep hope every day they are there. Some will be lucky enough to leave the shelter and go on to live long, happy lives. However, the unfortunate truth is that many of the animals will never leave. I make it my duty to ensure a comfortable and happy life while they are at the CACC.

As a volunteer at the Chicago ACC, I spend a lot of time with shelter animals who fight to keep hope every day they are there. Some will be lucky enough to leave the shelter and go on to live long, happy lives. However, the unfortunate truth is that many of the animals will never leave. I make it my duty to ensure a comfortable and happy life while they are at the CACC.

My goal is to make their holiday season extra special.

I am collecting donations for both cats and dogs. NEW and USED are OK!

•Blankets
•Beds
•Toys (Kong toys are VERY popular)
•Treats
•Food
•Any other sort of present you can spare to bring joy to the poor shelter animals.

I will happily and thankfully be accepting donations for the animals. Please email me through my EveryBlock profile for information on drop off or pick up of items. Also, feel free to drop off any items at the shelter located at 2741 S. Western Ave, Chicago (12pm-7pm). Thank you very much!

  • Hi Lindsay, I went to Petco and bought a bunch of toys and treats for the dogs and cats at CACC. I emailed you on EB but haven't heard back from you. Please email me back so we can coordinate getting this to you as soon as possible for the holidays. Thank you.
