New email scam targets businesses

MARENGO – The city of Marengo sent out a warning about a new scam targeting area businesses.

The emails, which were also sent to the Marengo-Union Chamber of Commerce, are designed to look like they are from the Illinois Department of Employment Security, the alert said.

In an effort to collect private information, they request information about a former employee and say they are time sensitive, it said.

The state is investigating the scam.
