Ridgewood NJ, Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office puts out a phone scam alert: The IRS? The FBI? My bank representative? A law enforcement officer? Really?
It isn’t new. But it isn’t old either. Phone scams have been around for a while. They do change as these criminals get sneakier and bolder. But.
One thing doesn’t change…Fraudsters can be very convincing sometimes, so keeping your guard up is crucial. Being suspicious of phone calls from strangers is key. And one thing is for sure…the IRS, the FBI, and BCPONJ will never call you on the phone to ask you to repay a debt, fine or warrant using Bitcoin, gift cards, bank wire, or Western Union.
Be wary of calls from strangers. Verify information told to you over the phone. Contact your local police if ever in doubt. Don’t send money blindly to a voice over the phone.
