Phone scam targeting IBEW Local 494 members

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – A local labor union is sending out a warning about a scam targeting its members and retirees.

International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 494 says someone claiming to represent the union is calling people and telling them there was a change in benefits.

That person is then offering to adjust accounts, trying to get personal information.

The callers are also reportedly using a number that shows up as Union Hall. If you’ve received a suspicious call or have any information, call police.
