Glens Falls police warn of phone scheme

Posted:

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. – The Glens Falls Police Department is warning residents of a recent phone scheme.

Police said during a phone call, the caller will state he is from a utility company, and the utilities as that location would be shut off due to a lack of funds.

Further investigation found the phone number used was not a current phone number for the actual company.

Police urge residents to be aware of fraudulent phone calls and be wary of releasing personal information or making a payment over the phone.
