Member News - PSEG

Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) is alerting customers to a phone scam concerning an immediate pre-paid card bill payment. While the scam appears widespread, it specifically targets small business customers. Greg Dunlap, vice president, of Customer Operations for PSE&G urges customers to take proper protocol before sharing card information over the phone.

Customers should look for potential scammer tactics: an individual pretending to be a PSE&G employee and asking for immediate payment or termination of their service, a return telephone number to call after the purchase of a pre-paid card, and any fake representative who asks for the information on the back of a pre-paid card.

The best way to avoid a potential scam is to proceed with caution and avoid sharing any personal or account information over the phone with anyone asking for immediate payment. Contact PSE&G via the phone number on its website for further questions or concerns: 1-800-436-PSEG (7734).
