Glen Rock NJ, Glen Rock Police Department issues a scam alert, saying “We were just notified that a chimney repair/sales/inspection company is calling residents which may be a scam. They are very aggressive and trying to give the impression that they are working for the Borough of Glen Rock or that the Borough setup and is requiring the inspection. A phone number provided by the resident comes back to a disconnected number which also fuels our suspicion. While there are legitimate and reputable chimney companies out there, unfortunately this is a area that has been rife with fraud in the past. The GRPD recommends residents should always research companies and seek out trustworthy recommendations from people you know before hiring a company for chimney work or any service. Although cold calling can be a legitimate way for companies to earn new business, be extremely wary of any company displaying aggressive tactics, uses pressure or fear to get your business and will not honor callbacks or waiting for you to do your research.”

The GRPD will be presenting a scam and fraud workshop on Wednesday May 23rd at 7:00pm. Check back later for additional details
