CHAMPAIGN -- An area woman wants to warn people about a scam. Yvonne Jones says she got an email stating it was from Ameren. It stated she'd defaulted on her bill by more than $400 and asked for payment.

Jones knew it wasn't true and, when she called Ameren she found out it was a scam. The president and CEO of Ameren is warning customers the scam is very convincing. If you suspect you're being scammed, call Ameren Illinois for account verification.
