Scam Description

Received a call saying it was from PSE&G telling me that they had not received the last 3 months payments and they had a technician coming to the promises shutting down the electricity if I did not make a payment.
they advised me to call a phone # :”1800-616-5630″ to speak to a manger.
I got suspicious, but I called the number: They said that there were a mixed up on payment due system changing and the business account show not payment for the last 3 months . also he went on saying that if I need to make a payment and if I did not make a payment the electricity was going to shut down.
At this time I was sure it was a scam and I told him: Go ahead and hang up the phone.
I wish someone can identify them and put them away for life.
