Stay alert and stop scammers in their tracks

PSE&G has experienced an uptick in scam reporting recently and encourages customers to stay alert and informed about scammers to #StopScams.

“According to the Federal Trade Commission, so far this year New Jerseyans submitted more than 26,000 fraud reports with an average loss of $308 per victim,” said Fred Daum, PSE&G’s executive director of customer operations. “Scammers have become more brazen with their tactics and all customers need to be aware. It is our hope that information about scams will be widely shared throughout our service communities so no one falls prey to these unscrupulous people.”

  • A scammer (phone number 732 582-5122) is pretending to be a PSE&G rep. They claim that the “Customer Choice Program” is running out, which would cost the consumer more money. When I asked “when” the program expires, they said there is no specific time. Instructed me to call back when I had my bill in front of me. Cheryl Johnson was the fake name of the caller. But, she left a reference number on the message. Pretty sophisticated.

    • December 30, 2019 received the scammer with phone #732-582-5122 claiming to be PSE&G
      Supply Charge for “Customer Choice Program” coming to an end and would cost more.
      Cheryl Johnson also left reference #0018891. as a rule at home telephone calls are screened first before answering. I must say this person was the best yet and she should go on stage she gave an authentic performance. But I asked my husband about this program and he never heard of it

  • Stay alert!!

    They called and left me a voicemail. The calling number was 8889120988

    Yes this is Cheryl Johnson. I’m calling in reference to your supply charges on your PS ENG account. According to our records you had enrolled in the customer choice program and it looks like it’s about to come to an end so we could increase the cost. If you wanna just give me a call here my number is 732-582-5122 and I just have a copy of your statement to review your reference number is 001-8891. Thank you.

  • I’ve been getting a lot of calls from the PSE&G 800-436-7734 number on my cell. I purposely don’t answer, but leave the phone on mute to see if anyone is on the other side. The scammers have been using your number to get people to give up info too.
