"Green Dot" scam targeting AC Electric Customers - Customers in South Jersey have recently contacted A.C. Electric to report being targeted with the popular “green dot” scam. The scammers target customers by claiming that they are behind on their account and must make an immediate payment to avoid service termination. Customers are asked to purchase a pre-paid debit card, such as Green Dot or MoneyPak, for a specific amount and then directed to use the card to make a payment. Once the information is provided to the scammer, the funds on the card are removed. If a customer receives a call stating they are collecting a bill payment for Atlantic City Electric, ask the caller to provide specific information including: account name, address, account number, and current balance. If the caller cannot provide this information, it is likely the call is a scam. Customers should never provide their social security number or banking or credit card information by phone unless they have initiated the call. The full News Release can be found HERE.
