Residents urged be aware of Comed scam involving Crypto-currency payments

TTW Press Room Attorney General Kwame Raoul is warning Illinois residents to be on the lookout for a scam in which thieves claim to be affiliated with ComEd in order to scare people into making wrongful cash or bitcoin payments that are nearly impossible to recover. According to the Attorney General's office, scammers are contacting Illinois residents in order to elicit cash or cryptocurrency payments, and Raoul is cautioning people against responding to such calls or messages. The scam involves a caller, purportedly from ComEd, threatening to shut off the call recipient's electricity unless a payment for a supposed past-due bill is received immediately. Callers instruct people to remit payment so that it will be received as soon as possible, frequently via bitcoin, a type of cryptocurrency. Scammers direct individuals to nearby bitcoin ATMs, which buy or sell bitcoins for cash. Instead of inserting a debit card to withdraw cash, people insert cash and have bitcoins sent to a bitcoin wallet. Raoul is warning people that bitcoin delivery is instant, and consumers who make such payments to a ComEd imposter's bitcoin wallet have almost no way to recover the money.

OP-ED: Your company’s Pro-BLM PR statements better match the receipts

An analysis by the consulting firm Creative Investment Research finds that while 232 American companies pledged $55 billion last summer, out of their collective $746 billion in 2019 net income, only a measly $250 million has actually been spent. Not only does this fall flat in comparison to those grand promises these companies have made, but there’s virtually no data available for where that money even went.
