The previous tenant wants me to add her name to my PSEG bill so her daughter can stay in the neighborhood school. It seemed a bit odd to me, any legal red flags I should be aware of?

  • Is she going to pay the bill? And what is PSEG? Dec 8, 2023 at 0:14
  • She mentioned covering the bill, although I neither requested nor require it. PSEG is New Jersey's utility providing gas and electric services

You are being asked to conspire to mislead a government official and to help facilitate fraud. This is a crime, and is a felony in some jurisdictions.

While crimes of this type are rarely discovered or prosecuted, there are examples of people being prosecuted for similar conduct and sentenced to significant prison terms.

  • Thanks for the answer! It was very helpful, I’m glad I asked.
