Scammers May Be Going Door To Door Posing As Workers, PSEG Says

Some scammers have been posing as PSEG employees and going door-to-door.
Some scammers have been posing as PSEG employees and going door-to-door.

Fraudsters on Long Island are stepping up their game, becoming more creative in door-to-door scams targeting utility customers, PSEG announced.

PSEG Long Island issued an alert this week warning customers that some scammers have begun positing as PSEG workers, knocking on peoples’ doors in an attempt to ascertain cash.

According to PSEG, the scammers have been demanding money through prepaid debit cards or bitcoin, threatening to turn off power to residences if the homeowner doesn’t comply.

PSEG said that If one wants to verify the person at your door is an actual employee, there's a number on the bottom of your bill that you can call.

“If anyone comes to your door looking like, or claiming to be, a PSEG Long Island employee, ask for ID. All PSEG Long Island employees must carry ID and present it when requested. 

"If you are not convinced, do not let the person in your house. Call us at 1-800-490-0025. A Customer Service Representative will gladly verify if a technician has been dispatched to your location.”
