On 07-09-2014, a business owner reported that an individual posing as an employee of JCP&L called him to advise him that his bill was past due and if he did not pay the bill within thirty minutes then his power would be shut off.  The suspect told the owner that he could either go to the power company’s Morristown office to pay the bill or pay the bill immediately over the phone with Money Pak cards.  The suspect advised the victim to purchase three $500.00 Money Pak cards and then call him back to give him the card numbers.  The business owner complied and later called the power company to confirm that he had a past due bill.  He found out after calling the power company that he had been scammed.  Another business owner also reported this scam but contacted the power company directly before buying the Money Pak cards.  The New Providence Detective Bureau is currently investigating the fraud.
