Atlantic City Electric Customers Warned of Billing Scam

Another utility in New Jersey is warning customers about an ongoing billing scam.

Atlantic City Electric announced Tuesday that some customers have reported receiving calls from people claiming to be utility representatives. The customers are told their service is about to be shut off and, to resolve the problem, they must make a payment by buying a specific brand of prepaid debit card and put the necessary amount of cash on it.

They’re also told to call another telephone number and provide the debit card number and related information. The scammers then use that information to cash out the card.

Public Service Electric & Gas issued a similar warning to its customers in January.

Officials say in some cases, the scammers have stolen a few hundred dollars from customers.
