Beware of phone scams

MORRIS COUNTY — Local Police Departments would like to alert area residents to a “One Ring Phone Scam” – automated phone numbers intentionally ringing one time, repeatedly, and frequently at random intervals – which continues in the area. The scam attempts to have the individual call the number back, at which time they keep the caller on the phone, and route the call through premium domestic and international numbers, resulting in hefty charges.

Residents are reminded to never give out personal information, are urged to block these callers, refrain from answering unexpected calls from unknown international or unusual numbers, and returning calls from unknown or suspicious numbers.

If you’ve fallen victim to this scam, resulting in monetary loss, please contact your local police department.
