Scams and Fraud

A message from First Energy Corp.

Don’t Fall for Telephone Scams

It has come to our attention that telephone scammers might be posing as a JCP&L employee demanding immediate payment. In this widespread scam, which frequently targets small businesses, a telephone caller poses as an electric utility company employee. The caller threatens to shut off the customer’s power unless an immediate payment is made. The facts: • If your account is past due, you will receive a written notice of your account status, with instructions on how to avoid disconnection of service. • While our representative may call a customer whose bill is in arrears in order to remind them that a payment is due, the representative would explain how a payment can be made using our established payment options. They will not demand payment over the phone, in person, or at a particular physical location. • Our utilities do not accept prepaid debit cards or wire transfers as payment, and our representatives will not demand your bank information or credit card number over the phone. What should you do: • If you receive a suspicious call, hang up immediately. • Be aware that scammers often use Caller ID spoofing software to misrepresent the source of a phone call, or provide you with a fake "verification" phone number. These call-back numbers may even include exact replicas of company greetings and hold messaging. If you would like to verify your account status, always call the JCP&L customer service number at 1-800 662-3115 or log in to your account on our website. • If a person appears at your door demanding payment, do not allow them into your home, and do not provide them any personal information. • If you believe you have been a victim of this scam, please contact your local police department or your state attorney general’s office, and report telephone scams to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov. • If you have purchased a Green Dot card to pay your electric bill and would like to request a refund from Green Dot... *FirstEnergy is not affiliated with Green Dot Corporations and is not responsible for any refunds associated with Green Dot Card purchases. Any questions regarding the MoneyPak Refund Request should be directed to Green Dot Corporations. For additional information about scams go to https://firstenergycorp.com/help/safety/scam-info.html

Chester Borough is pleased to welcome Daniel Hesse as our new full time Recreation Director/ Pool Operator. Daniel is anxious to share his enthusiasm for recreation with Chester. We have asked Daniel to share a little bit about himself.

I am a member of the National Recreation and Parks Association as well as the New Jersey Recreation and Parks Association. I am a Pennsylvania State University Alumni with a degree in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Management and lifetime Alumni Member.

In my spare time I enjoy being a fitness coach, skiing, musician, and film enthusiast. I am a hands-on guy who looks forward to providing leisure experiences that engage, enlighten, and teach.

Previously I worked as a Recreation Program Coordinator in Springfield New Jersey. My responsibilities included planning and executing events, sports programs, stem activities, and camps. I also managed an after- school program for 6th to 12th graders. During the Pandemic I worked with Summit Recreation, helping families through gaining donations with the local food banks and scheduling deliveries. During the summer of 2020 I was a Pool Manager for Marlboro Recreation facilitating in the daily operations and management of the swim club by providing social-distant COVID-19 guidelines to successfully run a safe pool experience for citizens.

I am excited to bring some fresh ideas to Chester Borough and add some fun into the Borough. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments, concerns, improvements, or requests at [email protected].

Vaccine Appointments

COVID VACCINE INFO:
If you know of a senior citizen or a resident with a pre-existing condition who would like to make an appointment for a Covid vaccine, and they do not have access to the internet, please let me know or please register them.

I understand that it is extremely difficult to get an appointment at this time, but we need to get those who are eligible registered. The Governor placed this responsibility to the municipalities, and the Borough does not have a list of seniors or other qualified residents.

The registration is available at: https://www.atlantichealth.org/conditions-treatments/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-vaccine/schedule-vaccine-appointment.html

Please do not shoot the messenger. I know there are many who are trying to get an appointment. I’m hoping as a community we can all look out for one another and do what we can to assist those with the most need.

Good morning all. I am the owner of Giftables on Main Street and am fortunate to be part of Chester Boro. I do not live in Chester, I live in Long Valley. I am concerned with the disruption to merchant business on Main street with the planned paving and repairs. Is there a way the borough could close Main Street for the duration of this work in order to encourage shopping and possibly increase foot traffic? The necessary construction equipment and workers would be safe and be able to access their machinery and the borough could benefit by supporting local business and landlords. Any reply from our mayor and/or council would be appreciated. Please delete if not allowed. Thank you.
With all the resources that Chester Borough has, can someone please FIX THE FLAG AT THE POOL?
Can you tell me how to get a registration for for the Chester pool?
Everybody needs to call the department of justice our rights have been violated!!. (202) 514-2000 opt 4 Department of Justice Main Switchboard. As many calls as can be made is a start. Keep calling. Spond done after calling.
Hi everybody. Most of you know that I own partyfair in Chester at Chester Springs shopping Center I just found out party city is allowed to offer curbside pick up. When I inquired I was told it is because they sell food specifically confectionery items candy chocolate and baking items. Is there an attorney or lawyer out there that may be able to help me in town with legal advice as to how I can offer curbside pick up as well. It was told to me that the chief of police would not allow it. I cannot afford an attorney at this time but I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out.
Our Congressman fighting for the Mom and Pop stores like those in downtown Chester Relentless leadership and advocacy for the mom and pop and true small businesses. Thank you Congressman Tom Malinowski for supporting the small business owners and for clear direction to Congress that more SBA funding must be provided ASAP and that big corporations with access to plenty of capital and the large banking corporations should not have one say about loans and grants for the true small businesses in every community. ☑️Yet another reason to re-elect Tom Malinowski for Congress. #NJ07 #SBA #SmallBusiness #SupportSmallBusinesses #BuyLocal
