Home repair scams

There are some guys driving around in a big shinny new bright blue pick up truck asking if you want any home repairs (foundations/cement work). One guy comes out of the truck and ask people who are outside working on their house. He comes up to you very nicely like he knows you. He was carrying a black folder we assume to write people estimates. We said no and they left. There is no name on the truck and the back plate on the truck has a darken plastic cover over it so you can not read the plate number. Male 30's dark hair buzz cut.

  • Barbs hey you kids, get off my lawn!

    This scam is a classic. The guy has no business card if you ask him for one. His buddy sits in the truck. The best part is how they act like they know you.

  • These guys tried this on us about a year ago. Same, exact, scam. Dude acts like he knows you...won't give you a business card...buddy stays in the truck. The black binder too. I politely told him no thanks numerous times...he was very persistent. The whole thing felt off to me. Definitely a scam.

Yet another stray package....

Hello all,

I figured I'd give it a try. If you live in the vicinity of Maplewood and Logan, and received an unexpected package, about 12" x 12" x 4" (cardboard box) addressed to the last name Martin, could you message me? I know it's a long shot, but it was an eBay purchase and USPS shows it as having been delivered to the front door. (And if you're the person who stole it, I hope you have a 16mm film projector because otherwise it's junk to you...)

Thanks,

Jeff

    UPS sent me a message they had delivered my package. I looked all over, not there! I told LL Bean, which sent a replacement. It arrived. Then I got a message from LL Bean saying they had received my return. I asked, what return? Turns out UPS SAID they had delivered my package, but never did. Instead, it was somewhere in their warehouse or truck and they returned it. I wonder if something similar happened to you. I have had packaged delivered by UPS for years, I am friends with the driver even and this has never happened. Best of luck finding your package or at least learning its fate.

Hit and Run last night

Last night (Friday) a little after 7:00pm my husband was hit by a car while crossing the street at California + Cortland. The police came, and he was taken to the hospital with a concussion, broken nose, and pretty badly beat up. We are grateful it wasn't worse. Regardless, the video from the liquor store wasn't enough to see a license plate. We think it was a red Ford SUV. If anyone saw anything could you let me know? Thank you!

Scam? Peoples Energy Bill??

I live at the Drake/Armitage Block and 3 people (one guy, 2 women) just came to my house asking to see a copy of my People's Gas energy bill. Told them no. They told me if they don't look at it my prices will increase sky rocking next month. Is this a new scam going around?

  • This scam has been going around for years, so I imagine people believe them all the time, sadly.

  • This is what is considered a Multi-Level Marketing company. The way these companies make their money is by having their sales people pay for the opportunity to sell electricity under the company name. The employees are paid for selling you electricity, but they are paid more when they sign someone up to sell electricity. So while they were telling the truth about switching your bill (your rate may very well drop with them), they are definitely scamming their own employees. Another example of a MLM is Vector marketing.

Bike stolen (Fyxation Eastside champion with stripes)

Hi Neighbors, if you see this bike anywhere, please reach out. I love this bike, and it was stolen while I was getting married, super bogus. I recently replaced the fork, so the front does not have the stripes that the body has, making it unique. It was stolen from our basement laundry room in Logan Square near Unity Park. It has a black rack and a copper bell.

  • Achilles Flaneur ear witness

    Very sorry to hear about this and the timing is especially lousy. A number of everyblock neighbors had similar experiences earlier this year in this neighborhood,myself included. We think the thief used a credit card to jimmy the lock as there was no sign of forced entry and we had only a doorknob lock on our exterior basement door.
    i wish you luck in finding it and best wishes in your marriage.

The police took statements but no one saw what happened except after the collision they saw the driver stopped then take off. No driver or car discription was provider either. However, one witness said the man flew up and over loosing his shoes in the process.

It was sad and humbling watching someone die in front of you in the middle of the street.

Suspicious Activity

Hi all,

I think there is a man casing the homes on the 2900 block of Wisner. He rang my doorbell on Tuesday evening, but had left my porch by the time I came to the door. I saw him pacing in front of my house and talking on his phone. Yesterday he rang again. When I answered the door, he asked me if we have Comcast cable and internet. When I answered “yes,” he said “Then I can’t sell you anything” and left. I didn’t take a good look at him. He was an Asian man with medium to heavy build. He was wearing light colored clothes.

  • Bonnie L. Braverman Logan Square Lover

    If you are him again call the police. Don't answer your door unless you know who is behind the closed door. Be very careful and keep us posted.

  • You can also request 'suspicious activity' on you block by calling the police station and police cars will make extra trips down your block. (If you re close to a school, that helps in the call.) Do call because remember 'if it doesn't feel right, than is is mostly likely NOT right.." We watch out for each other..

Stray cat problem

I have a stray cat that consistently sits on top of my car parked in my carport. Normally this wouldn't bother me but it's using my hood as a bathroom and a scratch pad. I intend to trap and bring to animal control unless someone has another suggestion.

  • PAWS has traps available. You can put a refundable deposit down and pick up the trap. You can then take the cat (in the trap) to Paws in Little Village for neutering or spaying. The cost is $40. That includes rabies shot, revolution flea and tick as well as a microchp and ear tipping.

Gunshots in Logan square?

At about 12:40am early Monday I hear what sounded like gunshots. 1 shot then followed by 7 after. Did anyone else hear this? I call 911 to be on the safe side I told them it sounded like it came from the direction of Diversey and Troy st.

  • bigbadron sorry.

    yeah, i'm trying to figure out what exactly happened. we just got back from a vacation and found out our car was hit. judging by the trajectory, it looks like the shots went north from Diversey. our neighbor said the shots were loud enough as if they were in the alley. regardless if the shots were from the alley or Diversey, the CBS story doesn't make sense. so either they messed up the report, or the guy who was shot was lying about what happened.

  • I’m so sorry your car was hit! The story had it wrong - The shots definitely happened on Troy, I think the guys were heading south, two cars shooting at eathother, as cars windows were shot out from the front and back.

Dog Owners Be Warned!

Please be aware there is rat poison in front of 2247 N Spaulding. This building is located on Spaulding between Belden and Palmer. The poison is in and around the planter boxes, right next to the sidewalk.

Please be careful and keep your dogs and kids away from this building/area.

We spent all night at the emergency animal hospital because a homeowner chose to be thoughtless and place poison in such a public space.

  • Hi Barbs, If you're responding to Mike’s comment - it’s not rat poison at that address.

    Thank you for being willing to help! Sometimes acclimating a cat to a new home can take a little time and needs to be done in a particular way when there are other resident cats. The new cat needs to be confined to a room where she can assess her new surroundings. Items, e.g., blankets, beds, between resident cats and new cat need to be introduced to the others. After some time and the new cat feels comfortable in "her" room, they can be allowed to see each other from a distance. New cat can be introduced to other parts of the house while the residents are confined, etc. It can be a slower than desired process but it can work out. I'm sharing in the hopes you weren't aware like may people and can then re-try the introduction. Thank you again for your kind-heartedness!

    Carla is right, it can often take a ton of patience in bringing in a new animal. I just adopted 2 kittens about 5 weeks ago and it hasn't been easy for me mainly because I, like other humans want things to happen faster than fur creatures actually need. I'm definitely learning patience. I did exactly as Carla says above. It took 10 days to get Sammy kitten to come out from under a dresser in his room. About another week before he was able to leave that room. At least another week before he found his favorite spots to sleep in the house and finally he is playing with the other cats...but, he still runs from me! I've wanted to give up a few dozen times but the two kittens are bonded and at least Sammy is now comfortable with his fur brothers. But gosh, it does take some time. Cats DO adjust in due time. Hoping you give Sparkie more time? Its so hard to find new homes considering there are so so many animals out there needing homes. Best of luck to you!

    It would be better if the dog COULD sit on the sidewalk, but he can't; he's all cramped up in a red Radio Flyer wagon. Either way, the guy is somewhat volatile, and the dog does not appear to be comfortable in the situations the guy puts him in. Add on to that that many people have stated he sometimes hits the dog, and something has to be done to help both of them, which is what I said the last time. So don't jump jump all over me.

Armitage & Washtenaw Development

Anyone know what kind of project is taking place on the south side of Armitage between Fairfield and Washtenaw? I never knew what the structure was, perhaps an above ground garage for the adjacent condominiums?

  • I live on the block and according to notices we have received, they are constructing a 4 story condo building with retail on the ground floor. I believe it is slated to be 54' tall. It was previously a warehouse.

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    It used to be a warehouse for Goya Foods

  • This link will tell you more. It's from two years ago when they first announced the project. The owners hand was finally forced this last summer when a portion of the roof caved in from standing water. The city condemned the building. Given how slow things have been going I wouldn't assume they're going to start building the new structure right away.

Alderman Carlos Rosa introduced mega down zone of Milwaukee Ave (Kimball to Central Park) to City Council. Outcry forced belated "forgot to have transparent community meeting" Monday 10/30 6:30pm @ Hairpin Lofts (Milwaukee @ Kimball). Down zone to B2-1 is single family home residential development density. see Zoning chart. 2,500 sq ft of lot required to build each new dwelling unit with Rosa downzone. Some properties have existing zoning B or C dash 3 & higher. Rosa down zone to dash -1 lowest density devalues some long time owners tremendously. Rosa may not be around after 2019 electio; residents and community will be stuck with this for a long time. It's one thing to force developers who seek upzone to get Alderman and community approval, it's another to broad stroke Aldermanic prerogative mega down zone historic higher density business corridor near transit hub to uber low density to control all possible development. Some elderly Polish speaking affected long time property owners dont even know Rosa has done this.

Mover

Does anyone know of a reasonable mover for a long distance relocation? There are so many of them...but not with a lot of good reviews.

  • Thank all of you for your suggestions and help!! I was getting so frustrated but this
    makes the process seem more sane...

  • My friends used Beacon- which is in the near suburbs -for international move and they were really delighted (of course it cost a fortune but that was because they didn't downsize.) Sorry I can't give you more information.
