When a new phone fraud occurs, scammers are exposing the New York State Police

Points Highlighted:

  • People who receive scam calls claiming to be from or affiliated with New York State Police should get as many details as possible and report it to the New York State Attorney Charities Bureau or the nearest Attorney General’s Office.

  • The scammers say they are a member of the State Police and that the person is facing pending charges. They then request money or bank information. Many of the calls have centered around the Highland area, in Ulster County. “Neither the state police, nor any agency authorized by it, will ever solicit for money or ask for personal information over the phone,” the State Police said in a news release.

State Police suggests that people should be wary of callers who don’t provide a name or address, demand immediate payment, are vague about how money will be spent, refuse to provide financial information about a charitable organization, or appear impatient when asked reasonable questions about the organization they are representing or how the contributions will be used.
