EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick Police Department has given a warning to residents regarding phone scams in which callers pretend to be representatives of PSE&G, which is doing a great deal of work in the township.
Residential and small business customers have reported receiving phone calls from individuals claiming to be PSE&G employees. Payment is demanded within hours using a pre-paid debit card.
Here are some things to know:
▪️PSE&G offers a variety of payment options and would never require a specific type of payment.
▪️Customers scheduled for disconnection due to nonpayment receive written notice on their bill at least 15 days in advance.
▪️PSE&G will never ask for personal information over the phone unless you initiated the contact.
▪️If you ever doubt the legitimacy of a call from PSE&G, especially if payment is demanded, hang up and call PSE&G directly.
