This is an energy broker (who won't identify themselves) who is trying to get you to switch over from PSEG or JCPL.  I, too, receive 5 or more calls per day from this number, and I, too, am on the Do Not Call Registry.  Sometimes they call me about my "current bill with PSEG".  Sometimes they call me about my "current bill with JCPL.  That should tell you something.

When you try to talk to a rep to get your number removed, they will ask for your account number.

NEVER GIVE ANY ACCOUNT NUMBER OR EVEN YOUR NAME TO ANYONE COLD CALLING YOU.  ANY LEGITIMATE COMPANY THAT YOU ALREADY DO BUSINESS WITH ALREADY HAS YOUR NAME AND ACCOUNT NUMBERS, AND WILL NEVER ASK YOU TO PROVIDE THESE THINGS.  IF SOMEONE ASKS YOU FOR THIS TYPE OF INFORMATION OVER THE PHONE, IT IS A SCAM.

Furthermore, whoever these people are, they at times try to misrepresent themselves as PSEG or JCPL to gain your trust (they are NOT PSEG or JCPL; again, they refuse to identify who they are).

This is a shady scam.  Just look at the phone number:  973-177-8600.  The prefix is 177.  I'm pretty sure that the prefix is supposed to start with any digit that is 2 through 9, but a prefix starting with 1 is not legitimate.  Think about it.  Have you ever known of a phone number, whether in the 973 area code or any other area code in the United States, where the prefix starts with a 1?  I don't think so.  This is why when you try to call this phone number, "Your call can not be completed as dialed."  It seems, you can't trace this number to any actual identity, and that is probably how this entity, whoever/whatever it is, is getting around the Do Not Call Registry.

Obviously, this is not a legitimate company if they are using deceitful practices to get around the Do Not Call Registry, misrepresenting themselves as PSEG or JCPL, and don't even have legitimate phone numbers.

FYI, other phone numbers used by this company are:

973-158-9945
973-138-9533
973-149-8447
973-161-7845
973-189-5635
732-189-5635
973-147-8799
973-177-8600


These all have the same complaints attached to them.  "Calls multiple times a day."  "Won't leave a message."  "Energy broker trying to get me to switch."  

Again, notice that all the prefixes begin with a 1.  158, 138, 149, etc. etc.

I am posting this on the complaint threads for each of these phone numbers.
