Public Service Electric & Gass [PSEG]"surprise" deposit requirements for 9-year customer

PSE has joined the ranks of punishing people who are working hard to pay their bills by asking them to pay even more. I was surprised at the amount of a bill I recently received, and dug deeper to discover they added a security deposit to my bill. Because I paid late a couple of times they say. I'm sure I've paid late a few times over the past nine years, but I've always paid, including the late fees, and my bill is current. Not cool at all for a company who has a monopoly on a necessity to suddenly hit people with surprise deposit requests, and then refuse to budget on it. I'm still fighting it but I want everyone to know how PSE is treating us honest, hard-working people.

    Public Service Electric & Gas [PSEG]meter read/customer service/equal payment plan

    Rip off! Rip off! Rip Off!. I just moved to the Burbs and I'm having to deal with this horrible company. They know we don't have other options so they can basically do what they want. You can even tell by the way you are treated by their representatives. Horrible service and rude. I'm finding that there always some reason why my bill ends up being backed up and I'm giving some crazy, unreasonable bill amount. I'm so disgusted and angry that this is my new reality. The equal payment plan is also the biggest trick so far. Don't do it!

      PSE&Goutrageous hike in bill

      My Business bill for the month of June is outrageously high. I need PSE&G to get their acts together and stop the indiscriminate hike in bills. I have called their customer service over the phone to no avail. No matter what you tell them, you are still in the wrong and you are getting charged the right bill. They are of no help. My May's bill was about $158 and change only to get two bills for the month of June totally $422.23! without doing anything different than turning on my fan on the hot and humid days! The non effective, energy saving a/c I have was only turned on once out of the less than 30 days for this outrageous bill!

        I claimed bankruptcy a couple of months ago and had no balance due on PSEG account but was charged a reconnection fee of almost $500.00. Where do they get off doing things like this, this is robbery. They need to be stopped and their customer service is terrible. These people need to have some outside entity to govern what they do and how they treat people they are the worst in so many ways.

            PSE&Gpayment assistance


            I am writing yet again for assistance with my electric/ gas bill. I have explained several times in the past that my husband is now disable. He no longer works therefore he had to income for about 8 months. He was just approved for disability payments and we are trying our best to get back on our feet. We are still waiting approval on assistance through the pack agency. So can someone please explain why a peg representative keeps showing up at my door telling me my bill is past due and asking for outrageous amount to keep the services on???? I have explained that my husband uses a machine for his sleep apnea throughout the day and night. This is going to be my last correspondence. I have reached out to pseg customer service line. The woman though nice explained that I would have to pay 1200.00 of a 1600.00 bill. Are you kidding.?? If I had that kind of money the services would not be past due. I'm not going to waste my time any more writing letters and sending emails. I'm getting an attorney involved. You cannot tell me that with all the payment assistance services I see on pseg website. I can't qualify for anything? And the best they can tell me is pay 1200.00. No way am I going to sit back and let this happen. One last thing. If you had to choose between paying your utilities or feeding your family and getting medicine then we all know what the choice would be.

              PSEGhigh bill outrageous illegal

              This company NEEDS to be investigated for FRAUD. How the hell can they get away with this? Where is the class action. You can't charge someone 267 friggin dollars for ONE GOD DAMN MONTH when we barely use our utilities here in our 700 sq ft apt. We're at work all day. This is ludicrous. They are scamming us and getting away with it. In 2012 a "state agency" was investigating PSEG for over charging customers. How the hell is this legal?

                  Pse&g is billing me 277.98 for 8 (eight) days of service and the unit is empty. And unit it 800 square feet. I spoke to 5 (disrespectful) people of phone who were clueless, then a supervisor Anwar #cm13w who put me on hold not less then 4 times (total time on phone 3hours) just with supervisor and we got nowhere.

                PSE&Glack of protocol

                I recently smelled gas on th outside of my house and called PSE&G to get the issue resolved. It was basically an issue outside the house with the gas meter. I clearly stated all of these detail to the representative on the phone. I asked them if I needed to be home and they said that I would not need to be home. While I was out, about a 30 minute drive away, they called me and said that they have to shut off my gas and if I dont come back in time, I would have to call in to have it switched back on. When I got back home, I called right away and they said that they would send someone out within 2 hours and for me to call back if no one showed up. The 2 hours passed and it was 7:30 PM by now. When I called back I was told that they may or may not come. The next morning, I called them and instead of admitting that the whole issue was their fault, they basically said that when someone isn't home and the gas needs to be shut off, it wont be switched back on unless someone is at home. I don't understand why it is so difficult for a company as big as PSE&G to just create a protocol which states that for any repairs, someone must be at home. By giving customers the impression that they are accommodating their needs, all they have done is create more issues for the customer. I am now without gas 18 hours later and my house is quite chilly and I haven't been able to get any cooking done for a very busy weekend. PSE&G, please change your policies. Wake up and pay attention to what real customer service is!
