MONTCLAIR, NJ - Montclair Township officials are warning residents of a 3rd party bill payment service that may mislead users into thinking they are paying directly to the Township of Montclair.
On Wednesday, Montclair Township issued a press release stating that, "Google search results for Montclair on-line bill payments may yield a website that appears to be affiliated with the Township of Montclair but is not -– doxo.com." Doxo.com is a third-party website that allows people to pay utility bills via their site, officials warn potential users.
They further indicate that users may be charged extra fees and the Township cannot control when payments will be received from doxo.com.
The release further warns that the delay in payment, due to this 3rd part service could possibly, "lead to service disconnection due to non-payment or interest charges for late payment."
If you receive suspicious phone calls or emails from someone claiming to be a a township representative, please contact the Montclair Police Department at 973-744-1234.
