PSE&G urges customers to be alert to payment scams. During the past week, several customers advised me about scammers contacting them by phone.

 

In the most common scam, phony callers lie and say there is an unpaid balance and demand immediate payment with a prepaid card.

Recently, PSE&G received additional reports that scammers are using fake caller ID information to trick customers into thinking they are speaking with PSE&G.
