The New York State Police have warned of a recent wave of Phishing Scams. According to the Associated Press, scammers are calling New York State residents with the false claim that they are the NYS Police, and that the victim’s identity has been stolen. The caller then says that in order to further investigate the matter, they need certain pieces of personal information from the victim. These calls are not from the State Police. If you receive one of these calls, hang up IMMEDIATELY and call your local State Police office to report it. Also, remember to never give out personal info over the phone, especially if you do not know the caller personally, and if you did not initiate the call.
