Important Information Regarding JCP&L Scam
Mayor Amato would like to advise residents of a new scam regarding JCP&L. The following information was provided to my office from JCP&L. As a reminder Never give personal information over the phone, especially Social Security numbers, banking or credit card account numbers.
If you believe you have been a victim of a scam, call the Ocean County Prosecutors office at: 732-929-2027.
JCP&L has received increased reports of scammers targeting utility customers. In the latest scam, a telephone caller poses as an electric utility company employee and threatens to shut off the customer’s power unless an immediate payment is made. In many cases, the customer is told to pay using a pre-paid debit card, such as a Green Dot/MoneyPak card, a money transfer service like Money Gram or Western Union, or in person at a physical location.
Be aware that scammers often use Caller ID spoofing software to lead you to believe you are receiving a call from JCP&L, and/or provide you with a fake “verification” phone number. These call-back numbers may even include exact replicas of greetings and hold messages you would hear when calling JCP&L’s Contact Center.
Facts to remember:
If your account is past-due, you will receive a written notice of your account status, with instructions on how to avoid disconnection of service.
While JCP&L representatives may call a customer whose bill is in arrears in order to remind them that a payment is due, the representative would explain how a payment can be made using JCP&L’s established payment options.
They will not demand a payment over the phone or at a particular physical location.
