Phantom Debt Phone Scams Increasing in Bergen County: Prosecutor
Comment: Bergen County officials are warning residents about an increase in phone scams that threaten victims with fines over non-existent debts. These callers are pretending to be representatives for law firms, judges, court officials, and debt collectors. Never share personal and sensitive information over the phone during an unsolicited call and remain suspicious of any caller that requests immediate payment, especially if they request the payment in the form of a gift card or prepaid debit card.

Comment: Popular products and services can be attractive lures for malicious actors to use to trick victims into performing an action such as clicking a link, visiting a website, or opening an attachment. Always investigate promotional offers before acting on them, especially if they are shared via email or social media. Verify email addresses and social media profiles to make sure that they are not spoofed accounts.
