The Fort Lee Police Department is issuing a warning to our local businesses and merchants regarding a possible telephone scam that targets local businesses.
The individuals involved are contacting local businesses and merchants. They are identifying themselves as employees for PSE&G. The caller informs the business that their payment for service is overdue and instructs them that they need to make payment via some type of money card. The caller then provides the merchant with a New Jersey telephone number to call back with the account information on a specific card once they complete the transaction.
