Quincy Police say a utility scam is back.

Businesses in the Quincy area have been receiving calls from someone claiming to be an Ameren Illinois representative and warning that the company is behind on payments and that power will be shut off in two hours if they don’t pay. Ameren says the caller then tries to get payment via a prepaid debit card. Ameren officials say that if you are behind on your utility bill… you will receive a notice in the mail.
