Crime Alert | PECO Scam
The Radnor Township Police Department has issued a crime alert for residents to be aware of a new scam. A resident was contacted on the phone from a subject identifying himself as working for PECO and attempting to collect a past due balance of nearly $1,000. The caller then suggests the subject can pay the bill in person at a specific address in Warminster, which is a legitimate PECO Service Building. The caller then says the bill can be paid by obtaining Green Dot cards at CVS and calling him back with the card's numbers. A PECO representative would not advise a customer to obtain Green Dot cards to pay a bill and residents should be aware that this is a scam.
