Glen Rock Police Warns of Continued PSEG Scams

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Glen Rock NJ, the Glen Rock Police Department reminds you that Public service, electric, gas and other utility scams continue to be reported to the GRPD. Please educate your friends and family. These cases are next to impossible to investigate and usually involve suspects outside the United States. Our best defence is helping others recognize the red flags and prevention. If in doubt, call the service company directly using a phone number off your bill or call the GRPD and ask us to take a look. These suspects use fear and pressure to try and demand you act without stopping to think a moment. If you feel uncomfortable, take a minute to check on what the person on the phone is telling you. This goes for anyone who comes to your home or business as well. High pressure tactics are designed to get people to act before thinking things through. Be safe.

Report Fraudulent Activity : If you think you may have been a victim of a scam, call us at 1-800-436-PSEG (7734) and then file a report with your local police
