Scam Alert:

 

PSE&G is once again urging customers to be vigilant to a telephone scam where callers threaten to shut off electric or gas service if payment is not made that day.

 

The scam, which has been reported across the country, involves payments using Green Dot MoneyPaks, and currently seems to be targeting customers in Mercer County.  (PSE&G alerted the public to a similar scam several times in 2013.)

 

 how does the scam work? 

 

  • Individuals pretending to be PSE&G employees call customers and demand that they make payment within hours using a Green Dot Money Pak, a type of pre-paid card.
  • Customers are told to purchase a Green Dot MoneyPak at a pharmacy or convenience store, use cash to put money on to the card, and then provide the number on the card to the person who called them.
  • Customers are advised that if they do not immediately call back and provide the MoneyPak information, their gas/electric service will be shut off that day.
  • Typically, after the customer provides that MoneyPak number, the scammer transfers the funds to a prepaid card, and cashes it in at an ATM.

 

 what should customers know?

 

  • Customers should be wary of callers who demand immediate payment and threaten service termination.
  • PSE&G does not accept Green Dot Money Pak cards.  PSE&G offers a variety of payments options, and would never require a customer to use one specific type of payment.
  • When PSE&G makes an outbound phone call to customers, customer-specific information is shared with the customer.  That information includes the account name, address, number and current balance.  If customers do not receive this correct information, they likely are not speaking with a PSE&G representative.
  • Any customer who has doubts about the legitimacy of a call from PSE&G — especially one in which payment is requested — should call PSE&G directly at 1-800-436-PSEG (7734).

 

  • PSE&G customers scheduled for disconnection due to nonpayment receive written notice on their bill at least 10 days in advance.  Customers who are struggling to pay their bill are encouraged to call PSE&G at 1-800-357-2262 to discuss payment options and visit pseg.com/help to learn about programs that can help.

Deer Management Committee

Email:deermanagement@hopewelltwp.org

WHEREAS,  on September 29, 2009, the Hopewell Valley Deer Management Task Force was created to develop a plan to mitigate negative impacts caused by deer on the quality of life of residents of Hopewell Valley and on the ecologic!integrity of its forests; and

WHEREAS,   the  Task  Force  was  charged  with  (1)  initiating  a  public  education program, (2) creating a comprehensive deer management plan and (3) determining the requirements for long-term sustainability of a successful deer management plan; and

WHEREAS,  the Task Force conducted eight (8) public meetings, distributed and analyzed a public questionnaire, performed a nighttime spotlight survey of-the deer population and published articles about deer management issues in local newspapers; and

WHEREAS,  in  September, 2010 the Task  Force presented its 56-page "Hopewell Valley Deer Management Plan" to the Hopewell Township Committee; and

WHEREAS,  the Task Force found that the dramatic rise in the deer population has resulted in several negative impacts, including Lyme disease, deer-vehicle collisions, agricultural losses and landscape planting damage, all of which adversely affect the quality of life of residents of Hopewell Valley; and

WHEREAS,  the Task Force also found that forests  are adversely impacted by over abundant deer that graze on native plants and that the long term maintenance of forest cover is in jeopardy because new trees are eaten before they can replace those that fall; and

WHEREAS,  the Task Force recommended a set of five (5) comprehensive goals to address these concerns, and offered eleven (11) specific strategies to meet the stated goals; and

WHEREAS, among other things the Task Force requested that the Hopewell Township Committee appoint a standing committee to implement the Task Force plan; and

WHEREAS,  the Township Committee believes it to be in the best interest of the Township to create an Advisory Committee that will meet at least monthly and provide the Township Committee with reports, information and advice about steps to take to better manage the deer population in Hopewell Township and to mitigate the adverse effects of the deer population on the health, economics and ecology of the Township.
