MAYS LANDING – Atlantic City Electric reminds home and business owners to use care when someone claiming to represent a business contacts them either in person or by telephone, especially during the holiday season.

Recently, Atlantic City Electric has been alerted to a “Green Dot” scam. Information from law enforcement officials and other utilities has indicated that scammers are targeting residents and businesses. It has been reported that scammers are telling business owners that the location's electric service account is delinquent and it will be shut-off for non-payment unless the business purchases a "Green Dot Money Pack" for a specific amount from stores including CVS, Rite Aid and WaWa. Victims are then given instructions to call a telephone number with the card’s account number and pin. Once the scammer obtains the card’s identifying information, the value is then downloaded, swept and stolen. These transactions are untraceable.
