BACP Investigator Imposter Warning

Posted on July 22, 2021

BACP received confirmation that the individual depicted in this Imposter Notice is impersonating a BACP Investigator. Listed below are details:

  • He goes around to mostly Latino owned businesses and tells them that they need to buy the Labor/State poster (also included in the attached Imposter Notice).
  • He goes on to say that if they don’t the City will shut them down.
  • The poster is accessible on the State’s website, and there are no costs associated with obtaining it.

The owner of the restaurant informed BACP that the person charged them $62 for the poster. BACP has heard this before but didn’t have evidence. As a reminder, BACP Investigators:

  • Do not sell anything,
  • Do not collect money in the field, and
  • Always carry a City of Chicago Employee ID and a City of Chicago Investigator Star Badge.

Please report anyone impersonating a city inspector by calling 911.
