The Quincy Police Department is warning of yet another phone scam making its way across the Quincy area.

In a Facebook post Wednesday afternoon, the QPD shares that they've received a number of reports from would-be victims of the latest Ameren scam. Essentially, the target receives a phone call from someone claiming to be from Ameren who warns that because of unpaid utility bills, power will be shut off unless an immediate payment is made.

It seems we come across this every month or so, but once again, THIS IS FAKE! If you receive such a phone call, the Quincy Police advise that you simply hang up and absolutely do not give out any personal information over the phone.
