New Milford NJ, the New Milford Police Department is reporting a Scam Alert: The New Milford Police has been receiving numerous reports of residents being called by someone from the social security administration advising that their social security number has been used to rent a vehicle and that vehicle was used in a crime. The caller will then ask the victim to confirm their social security number or request that they send them money via pre-paid gift cards or other unconventional payments. This is a scam. Please be attentive to these types of calls and do not provide any personal information. The New Milford Police are always available to handle any questions or concerns.
