Police warning folks of phone scams this holiday season

Local News

As we head into the holiday season, Pennsylvania State Police are warning folks to be on the lookout for more phone scams. Troopers say scammers often target victims over the age of 60, and convince them to send large sums of money online by pretending to be an organization that needs donations, or someone who needs help. Police say there are many ways you can avoid getting scammed. They say to never wire money or send it via gift cards to someone you haven’t met. Contact your family and friends to make sure a scammer isn’t impersonating them. Call police if a scammer targets you.
