Borough of Merchantville  
1 West Maple Avenue
Merchantville, NJ 08109  


Recently there was an attempted phone scam in the Borough. A male stated he was a representative of PSE&G. He told the resident that he had to make immediate payment or his electric would be turned off. He told the resident the computer systems are down and he instructed the resident to purchase 4 Green Dot Cards in the amounts of 3 for $500 and 1 for $133. The resident contacted PSEG and was told this was a scam and not to purchase the green dot cards. PSEG also advised the resident to contact the police. Should someone attempt this scam with you, contact the police immediately. DO NOT purchase any payment cards or give the person any money! Don’t even open the door for someone you do not know. Call the police. If the person is a representative of PSEG they will not have a problem with the police investigating.

Dear Property Owners and Residents
Enclosed please find your annual sewer bill for the calendar year 2011. The first portion
is due Monday, April 1, 2011 rather than June 1st. The second half is due October 1,
The change in billing dates from June to April and December to October has been
necessitated due to our obligation to make payments for the upgrading and relining of the
Borough’s antiquated sewer mains.
