Com Ed Scams
I have received calls regarding phone calls from people saying they are from Com Ed. Sometimes they are scams and sometimes other utility companies looking to get your business.

Com Ed will never call or come to your home or business to:
  • Sell you electricity
  • Ask for immediate payment with a prepaid cash card or cryptocurrency such as bitcoin
  • Ask for your account number or other personal information such as Social Security Number or Tax Identification Number
  • Ask to see your energy bill

ComEd never collects payments at kiosks that issue prepaid cash cards or cryptocurrency such as bitcoin.

How you can recognize a ComEd employee:
A ComEd field employee may knock on your door if we are unable to access our equipment, like the meter or pedestal transformer. You can identify a ComEd employee by:
  • Uniform - all ComEd field employees wear a uniform with the ComEd logo, including a shirt and safety ves
  • ID - employees will be wearing a ComEd ID badge with their name and ComEd listed
  • Vehicle - ComEd vehicles are white in color with a ComEd insignia on the car or truck
To confirm that someone is really a ComEd employee, call 1-800-EDISON-1 (1-800-334-7661) before engaging with the person.

We also ask customers to be wary about sharing the following information:
  • ComEd account number
  • Passwords to your accounts
  • Information on your last payment
  • Social Security number
  • A copy of your energy bill

If at any time you are uncomfortable, or you feel you are experiencing suspicious behavior, call 1-800-EDISON-1.

Report Phone Scams
If you believe you have been the target of a phone scam, ComEd urges you to contact the Illinois Attorney General’s office at 1-800-386-5438 (TTY 1-800-964-3013), or visit the  Illinois Attorney General's website  and select the “Protecting Consumers” link.
