I am sending out this to let you know of a scam that is going on around the country it seems. We have now confirmed this is in Illinois.
Scammers are calling people telling them they have a past due balance with ComEd or Ameren and having them pay over the phone when the customers have no balance.
Please share this information to as many people as you can. We need to get the word out to people to NOT be giving financial information out over the phone. They should hang up and contact the utility directly first.
This scam has made it to Illinois per a notice that we received from Rock River Energy. They had one of their customers just scammed. They told him he needed to get a prepaid Visa card for $400 which he did. He had no balance with ComEd.
Welcome to the village of Pearl City's website
We're hoping to use this site as a means of communicating with our existing and future residents.
For existing residents, you'll be able to find information about events happening in the community, for example, when hydrants are being flushed or when leaves are being picked up. You'll be able to see what projects your board is working on and be able to provide feedback.
For potential future residents, we hope to give you a feeling of what it is like to live in our beloved village. We have some of the friendliest people around and a great school to help your children get their education started off right.
Well, go ahead and start clicking around. We hope you'll find something you like and that you'll be back soon.
