On Sept. 6, 2018, a local restaurant was approached by a man who asked if they needed any repairs on their freezer. The man then asked for a $200 deposit and said he would return. The man never returned to do the repairs and the phone number he provided did not lead back to him.
While this incident involved a business, it's a good idea for everyone to be alerted to this and spread the word. If you suspect you have been approached by a potential scammer, please report it to the St. Charles Police Department 630.377.4435.
