Police Warn Middle Residents of Phone Scam

By Herald Staff

COURT HOUSE — Middle Township police report that on Aug. 23, a report was received of a possible scam.
The victim received a cell phone call, from a person who identified himself as working for Comcast. The caller was allegedly attempting to collect on an outstanding Comcast bill.
That victim did not have a Comcast account, and questioned the caller. The caller refused to provide information to the victim and advised her that the bill was for $82.50, and they could take care of the bill over the phone with a credit card.
The victim did not provide that information or any financial information, police stated.
The public should be aware of such scams, and be alert to any unexpected calls from companies that attempt to collect money.
Police urge everyone to be suspicious of calls asking for an account number or credit card information.
If any Middle Township resident feels that they have fallen victim to such a scam, they should contact police at (609) 465-8700.
