Evesham Police Warning Residents About Phone Scam

EVESHAM, NJ (CBS) – Police in one Burlington County town are warning residents about a phone scam.

Evesham Township Police say the scam involves a caller who pretends to be a PSE&G employee and threatens to shut off the victim’s gas and electric if payment isn’t made. The scammer then convinces the victim to pay him/her with a pre-paid credit card so as to avoid their services being shut off.

Police say the scam was reported in the township on Sept. 13, 2013, but PSE&G officials warned residents about a similar scam in January 2012.

When in doubt, residents are advised to hang up on the caller and call PSE&G at the number listed on the bill.
