Unit block N. Lansdowne Ave. – The victim stated she was contacted by mail from PECO energy. The caller stated she owed money and if she did not pay, the power to her property would be shut off. The victim was advised to go to CVs and purchase two prepaid Money Pak cards. The victim did purchase the cards and they were transferred to the caller. I informed the victim that this was most likely a scam, since PECO wouldn’t call and threaten to turn off the power in 45 minutes, let alone tell her to go to CVS to purchase gift cards to pay them.
