Beware of Comed Impostor

At 8:40pm on Saturday, Sep 30th, a guy at his 30's buzzed our door, claiming he was a ComEd representative. He said he wanted us to switch to Green options and asked for our utility bill. I didn't show it to him. After chatting for a few minutes, he didn't get the information he wanted and left. I am not sure what kind of scam is this, but the whole thing is weird.

  • I_want_to_know In search of solutions!

    Companies like this periodically call me and try to get me to switch over to their company that will either supply gas or electric. It might have been legit and he probably said words implying he was with the electric company and then mentioned ComEd in the same sentence. I usually just say NO and then hang up. I think they came to the door once or twice but they can still hear a NO through the door too.
    I really don't like them asking me for my bills either.
