Beware of Multi-state Utility Payment Scam
DEP customers have been contacted by imposters attempting to steal personal information on behalf of a phony Federal program to pay their utility bill. Never give your Social Security number or banking information to someone soliciting personal information. Those contacting customers may be posing as DEP representatives. DEP will never reach out to you for your personal information. This is a scam.
The scammers ask customers to provide their Social Security and bank account number in order to be “eligible” for the fake program. Never submit a payment for your water and sewer bill to a third party. DEP offers customers several safe and secure payment options. More information can be found here.
