JCP&L would like to make you aware of a long-running nationwide utility scam that is again being reported in New Jersey.  The scam involves a caller posing as an electric company employee threatening to shut off power unless an immediate payment is made using a pre-paid debit card such as a Green Dot card.  JCP&L does not endorse the use of Green Dot cards as a bill payment method.  If a customer receives a call from someone demanding payment of their electric bill by using a Green Dot card, they are being scammed and should report the crime to local authorities.  Although JCP&L representatives sometimes do call customers to remind them that a payment is past due, they explain how a payment can be made using one of the following established payment options:  Direct Debit, Automated Phone Payment (1-866-569-4770), Authorized Payment Location (www.firstenergycorp.com/forms/paymentagencies) or by mail.  Any customer who has doubts about a call from someone claiming to be from JCP&L, especially one demanding immediate payment, should call JCP&L's customer service number at 1-800-662-3115.  For more information, visit www.firstenergycorp.com/paymentoptions.
