Fraud Alert - "PECO Representative" - 400 block of Roundhill Rd.
A Township resident received a phone call from someone claiming to be a "PECO Representative" and that the person's electric bill was over due and their power was about to be turned off. The caller did have limited information about the resident and was able to convince them to send over $1000.00 in Green Dot cards. If anyone else may have been a victim of this type of fraud they are asked to call the Radnor Police at 911.
The Radnor Police respects citizens' privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties by emphasizing behavior, rather than appearance, in identifying suspicious activity. Factors such as race, ethnicity, and/or religious affiliation are not suspicious. The public should only report suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack or package, or someone breaking into a vehicle or restricted area). Moreover, any physical descriptions are based on victim and witness statements provided to the Radnor Police at the time the incident was reported or developed through investigation
