PHONE SCAMMING

An Indiana resident reported that she was the victim of a phone scam. Unknown actors called the victim and pretended to be different local, state and federal authorities. The actors asked for personal, credit card and bank information to investigate her social security number, which they claimed was tied to illegal activities. The actors used several phone numbers during the course of the scam. Indiana Borough Police wants to remind residents not to give out any personal information. If you receive a call from a phone number that appears to be a law enforcement agency, hang up and call the agency yourself to verify that they are actually trying to get a hold of you, as scammers can spoof any phone number.
