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.
Time to Get Ready…For Hurricane Season
Hazardous weather impacts New Jersey residents on a regular basis. Many of us have experienced the long-term power outages, flooding, evacuations, property destruction, debris and other impacts to our daily lives that can result from the onset of nature’s fury. We can’t stop the onset of a natural hazard; but there are steps you can take to increase your safety and comfort when ad-verse conditions occur. We encourage you to read through this “Hurricane Survival Guide for New Jersey,” and take the actions necessary to secure your family and home. The preparations you make for hurricanes will also help you survive all types of natural disasters. The first step is to stay informed, via traditional or social media. The second step is to discuss hurricanes and other natural hazards with family members and determine ways to stay close and connected regarding your evacuation plans and locations. Consider those in your family or community who might need extra assistance, due to age or dis-ability, regarding emergency plans. Don’t forget your pets! The third step involves gath-ering emergency supplies; many of these items can be found around your home.Get ready now, be an example for others, share this information with those who need it.
