SCAM Alert

Recently several Morris Township residents have received telephone calls from people purporting to be Sheriff’s Officers. The people tell the would-be victim that they need to deliver money, specifically in our case, they demanded bitcoin or they will face immediate arrest. The scammers use actual Morris County Sheriff’s Officer names and the victim’s caller I.D. is manipulated to appear to be coming from the Morris County Sheriff’s Office. We would like to remind you NEVER to provide sensitive personal information, money, or access to your assets to any unknown individual. Also, please discuss this scam with family members who may be vulnerable to this type of crime. If you need any police service please contact the Morris Township Police Department at 973-539-0777.
