The Glen Rock Police Department share a recent message from PSE&G regarding recent scam activity

the staff of the Ridgewood Blog

Glen Rock NJ, The Glen Rock Police Department would like to share a recent message from PSE&G regarding recent scam activity. If you have any questions, or feel that you may have fallen victim for this scam, please contact the police department for further assistance.


Be Aware of Scam Activity

PSE&G wants to alert New Jersey residents and businesses that scammers have spoofed one of our phone numbers in attempt to obtain personal information from our customers. We have been receiving inquiries from customers returning calls they received from a PSE&G phone number that appeared on their caller I.D. We encourage you to view the video of a recent news interview with Fred Daum, PSE&G’s Executive Director of Customer Operations.
In light of this recent activity, if you receive an unexpected call from PSE&G in the coming days you should hang up as it may be a scammer. If you have pending business with us, such as an appointment or payment notice, call us back on the number provided on your bill or call our customer service line, 800-436-PSEG (7734). 
When a scammer pretends to work for PSE&G, they will often request personal data such as credit card information or account passwords. Never provide this type of personal information. When a customer calls PSE&G to conduct account business, PSE&G has numerous secure methods for verifying customer information.
Callers have recently reported that scammers have asked for personal information to obtain a meter reading, provide discounts on your PSE&G bill, or verify debit and credit cards on file. Such tactics are known utility scams, the most popular of which is a demand for immediate payment to avoid service termination. Before terminating service, PSE&G alerts customers in a number of ways: messages on their bill, letters and phone calls. PSE&G would never demand a specific type of payment nor threaten immediate service termination. While there are many ways to pay a PSE&G bill, the utility only accepts credit card and prepaid card payments through Western Union Speedpay, which charges a $3.95 processing fee.

Glen Rock NJ, A group of far leftwing extremist ,left of center Democrats ,progressive and assorted crackpot protesters from the area, many of them members of organizations such as Indivisible NJ5, the Democratic Club of Allendale, the Highlands Resistance, JOLT, Women of Action NJ, District 5 Coalition for Change, Ramsey Pins, Teaneck Women Working Together, Mahwah After the March, and Waldwick Progressives, gathered in the parking lot outside the office of Congressman Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ 5) Friday morning. Calling on the congressman to support calling for an impeach inquiry into President Donald J. Trump.

Gottheimer, who was not at his Glen Rock office at the time of the demonstration, has a primary challenge on his hands and has been accused by far lefties and progressives of playing both sides of the aisle.

For one hour, between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., a little over a dozen protesters, led by Susan Steinberg, called for impeachment inquiries to be opened, citing the Mueller Report and asserting that the president had undermined the democratic process during the election, colluding with Russian elements, and obstruction of justice, among other charges.

Glen Rock NJ, Glen Rock Mayor comments on Rock Road and Maple Ave road work ,”Please know that, for whatever it is worth, I share the frustration of residents who found it difficult or impossible to get to Rock Road at any time over the past few days while the milling was being done.
I was told that there would be access at all times though it might be difficult. My wife had to go to Fair Lawn to get to a Bank of America.
I find this unacceptable and can only assure you that I’m doing whatever I can to help the situation going forward and have asked the Borough employees who are coordinating the effort to help in our efforts to make this better going forward.”
