The Middlesex Township Police Department wants to warn the public about a current phone scam which is being reported. Police report that callers are phoning residents, claiming to be from a collection agency, and advising them that they have delinquent bills with Sprint which need to be paid. They provide the victim with their own name and phone number, along with an alleged Sprint account number and then ask for the victim's home address. The victims have reported that they have never had accounts with Sprint and when Sprint is contacted with the provided account number, it is reported that the number is not a Sprint Account number.
The public is reminded not to give out any personal information on the phone, nor send any monies and contact your local law enforcement agency if you receive any suspicious calls.
