The New Brunswick Police Department has recently received numerous complaints from residents and business owners, reporting “Phone Scams” from alleged PSE&G bill collectors.
The caller claims to be a representative of PSE&G and reports that the individual’s utility bill is overdue and if payment is not made immediately, the power would be turned off. The caller suggests payment be made through a pre-paid debit card or money order.
The New Brunswick Police Department wants to advise everyone that PSE&G does not solicit bill payments over the phone. If anyone receives such a call they should confirm with PSE&G the status of their account and report any fraudulent activity to the police department.
The New Brunswick Police Department can be reached at (732) 745-5200.
