2:12 PM – The owner of a Maple Avenue Salon reported receiving a phone call from an individual falsely claiming to represent PSE&G. The complainant was advised that if the business did not make a payment in the amount of $861.17 the gas and electric would be discontinued immediately. He was instructed to drive to the nearest CVS/ Walgreens and purchase 2 Green Dot Money Pack cards to make payment. He did so and provided the card verification numbers to the fraudulent representative. The matter has been referred to the detective bureau for investigation.
PSE&G will never demand a specific type of payment and threaten immediate service termination. If you receive a call directing you to go to a local store to purchase a pre-paid card to pay your bill, it is likely a scam. If you receive a strange call and are in doubt, hang up and call PSE&G at the phone number listed on your PSE&G bill.
