Atlantic City Electric
Never Provide Personal Information if Threatened with Immediate Disconnection of Electric Service
MAYS LANDING, N.J. – Atlantic City Electric reminds residential and commercial customers to take precautions when someone claiming to represent a business contacts them either in person or by telephone.Atlantic City Electric is continually alerting residents and its customers to avoid falling victim to a “Green Dot MoneyPak” scam. Information from law enforcement officials and other utilities has indicated that scammers are continuing to target residential and commercial customers.
Scammers are telling these customers that the location’s electric service account is delinquent and will be shut off for non-payment unless the customer purchases a “Green Dot MoneyPak” for a specific amount the scammer dictates from stores including CVS, Rite Aid and WaWa.
Victims are given instructions to call a scammer telephone number with their credit card 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.
Many companies, including Atlantic City Electric, will contact customers in person or via phone for various reasons. If someone claims to represent Atlantic City Electric, it’s important that individuals take precautions to verify that the person calling is affiliated with Atlantic City Electric, especially if that person is requesting an immediate monetary payment.
When addressing past due accounts, Atlantic City Electric never endorses a specific form of payment. Instead, multiple payment options are always given to the customer.
Atlantic City Electric advises customers to ask for official photo identification from any person who shows up at their door. Employees from reputable companies will carry official company identification cards. If proper identification cannot be produced, customers should notify police and the company with whom the individual claims to be associated.
Similarly, if someone calls saying they represent a certain company, customers should ask them to verify their identity and affiliation. If customers have any doubt about the validity of a person’s claim to represent Atlantic City Electric, they should call the company immediately at 1-800-642-3780.

During the storm, the Brigantine Office of Emergency Management recommends checking on family members and friends, as well as the elderly, disabled or isolated. Also the NJOEM recommends keeping pets indoors and dressing in layers to avoid frostbite and hypothermia when going outdoors.
OEM director James Bennett is recommending drivers check their vehicle’s cooling, charging and exhaust systems by a qualified technician and to have good wipers and windshield washer fluid on their vehicles. Throughout the storm, Lt. Bennett is recommending drivers drive slowly, leave distance between other vehicles and carry an emergency winter kit with flashlights, warm clothes, gloves, non-perishable snacks, a blanket, a shovel, an abrasive like sand and a cell phone charger. Before starting a vehicle, Lt. Bennett recommends drivers make sure their tailpipe is clean before starting their car and to remove all snow and ice from the vehicle.
OEM is prepared to activate an Emergency Operations Center during any major disaster to allow coordination of all support agencies to provide continuity of services to the public
