Warning: Don't Fall For PSE&G Phone Scam

According the the company, when PSE&G makes an outbound phone call to customers, the caller ID will identify the call as coming from PSE&G. The caller will provide you with your customer-specific information. If you do not receive the correct pieces of information, then you are likely not speaking with a PSE&G representative.
To be safe, hang up and cal PSE&G directly at 1-800-436-7734 or visit a local PSE&G Customer Service Center. Service Centers are open Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM with locations listed on customer bills and online at: http://www.pseg.com/centers
