The Beverly Police Department has been receiving multiple calls from residents concerning phone calls or other solicitations from supposed legitimate organizations. Please know, caller ID information can be changed to make it appear the phone call is coming from a real agency. Below is a list of recent fake caller ID’s…
New Jersey State Police
Edgewater Park Twp Police
Never act on any of the information or request for information over the telephone. Do not provide your name, confidential information, bank accounts, credit card numbers, birthdates, or Social Security numbers over the phone.
Always hang up and call the agency that the supposed call came from to verify the information; do not redial the same number that called you but instead look up the actual number for the agency to confirm they were the ones who called.
Also do not withdraw money from your account, purchase gift cards, get a money order , wire money, or send a check to anyone.
Another tip… when you answer your phone say “hello” only once. If there is a delay of a second or more before the person responds to you, the call is coming from a telemarketer or scammer; just hang up. Don’t become a victim.
If you feel your information has been compromised or believe you are a victim of fraudulent behavior, please visit the Police Department page on our site, or come the Police Station at 446 Broad Street so we can provide you with information to assist you in your recovery efforts.
