Utility Scam Update
We want to make you aware of a long-running, nationwide utility scam that is again being reported in New Jersey. The scam involves a caller posing as an electric company employee threatening to shut off power unless an immediate payment is made, using a pre-paid debit card such as a Green Dot card.
These pre-paid cards are available at convenience stores and drug stores, and customers can use them to pay bills or add money to online accounts. However, JCP&L does not endorse the use of Green Dot cards as a bill payment method.
If a customer receives a call from someone demanding payment of their electric bill by using a Green Dot card, they are being scammed and should report the crime to local authorities. Although our company representatives sometimes do call customers to remind them that a payment is past due, they explain how a payment can be made using one of the following established payment options:
Any customer who has doubts about a call from someone claiming to be from JCP&L, especially one demanding immediate payment, should call JCP&L's customer service number at 1-800-662-3115. For more information, visit www.firstenergycorp.com/paymentoptions.

Moth Night at Pequest Hatchery, July 23, 2014
Despite falling on the only rainy day of National Moth Week, there was lots of public interest in the evening of moth-related activities, with an estimated 200+ participants. Our aim was to raise awareness of a segment of local wildlife that is rarely studied, despite it's importance to the ecosystem - many moths are pollinators, as well as being part of the food web, feeding all manner ofwildlife. We raised awareness too, of the importance of native plants and trees, that provide food for caterpillars and nectar for adult moths.

Tips to Reduce Conflicts and Encounters with Black Bears
Black bears have emerged from winter dens and are entering a very active period of the year throughout New Jersey in search of food and mates, which makes encounters with humans more likely, according to Department of Environmental Protection biologists. New Jersey residents, especially families living in "bear country'' in Northwest Jersey, are urged to take a few basic precautions this spring to reduce the risk of potential encounters.
