Caller Type: Debt Collector
Phone Number Owner: PSC & G
Phone Number Report: This is a debt collector for PSE&G but it is NOT PSE&G. It is a firm that uses the "PSC&G" name (which on a phone recording sounds exactly like PSE&G). In and of itself, this is fradulent and misleading. They are trying to collect information like SSN, credit card number, etc. by asking you to enter it after the give you a code (to make it appear legit). DO NOT fall for this. They will use the information against you, and will claim that you provided it to them. With me, they made a simple mistake (wrong identity) but will not stop calling. You will never talk to a live person.
I am going to report them to the FTC, and hopeully that will put an end to the calls and shut these clowns down for good. I am working to find the actual collection agency they are representing. I think it may be ER Solutions out of Phoenix. If so, this is the agency that I will pursue action against.
Until then, I recommend that anyone who receives calls from "PSE&G" (really PSC&G) from 866-459-9173 either do not answer or choose the prompts that say you are not the person they are trying to reach and/or this is a wrong number. DO NOT--DO NOT--under any circumstances provide them with ANY information (even by touchpad on your phone). Report these calls here, and I will come back and post more information as it becomes available. These guys will be answering to the FTC soon enough.
