IRS Phone Scam

The IRS scam continues to take victims across the country, and right here in St. Charles. A recent change has been that the scammers are asking for payment over the phone with Apple iTunes cards, which should be a major red flag. While the scammers seem to still prefer to place phone calls, the Aurora Police Department recently shared a fake letter received, viewable on this page, by one of their residents. This signals a shift in the scammers’ methods, and suggests that not as many victims are falling via phone calls and voicemail messages anymore.

Mail Order, Kit or Catalog Houses

Beginning in the early 1900s through the 1940s, many homes were bought as kits from companies like Sears, Aladdin, and Montgomery Ward. A number of mail order homes were constructed in St. Charles. 

In 2013, the St. Charles Historic Preservation Commission worked with architectural historian Rebecca Hunter to conduct a street-by-street survey of St. Charles to identify possible mail order homes marketed by Sears Roebuck, Gordon-Van Tine, Montgomery Ward, Harris Brothers, Aladdin, Lewis, and Sterling. A total of 68 homes were identified.
