State Police Phone Scam Hitting The Capital Region
It’s happening again! Another phone scam is making its way around the Capital Region. With this scam, the callers claim to be the New York State Police.
State police are warning all New York residents not to give money to anyone over the phone claiming to be calling on behalf of the State Police.
It’s the latest scam going around not only the Capital Region but throughout New York State. State police say the phone number that’s displayed on caller IDs calls is: 518-897-2000. That’s a number for State Police in Ray Brook. However, it’s not the New York State Police calling. In fact, the State Police do not solicit donations from the public at all in this manner.
If you get a call from this number, or from any number where the caller is claiming to be the State Police, do not give them any personal or financial information.
Spread the word and let your family and friends know!
