Phone scam targets Ameren customers
CHAMPAIGN -- Police and Ameren are warning customers of a potential scam. At least ten calls have been made the past few days from someone pretending to work for Ameren. The person says your payment is late and you have two hours to pay up or lose your service. The calls target small businesses. Anyone getting a call like this should hang up and call police or Ameren.
