NUTLEY, NJ - In the ongoing attempts to defraud township residents, a recent phone, claiming to be from the Social Security Administration, was unusual enough to warrant a call to the Nutley Police Department.
On Wednesday, a resident reported they had received several suspicious calls from a "Kevin M. Huse" claiming to be from the Social Security Administration.
The caller claimed there appeared to be fraudulent activity on the resident's social security account. The caller asked for the last four digits of the individual's account number. The resident provident those numbers.
The caller then claimed there was Federal investigation regarding a 2012 Black Toyota Camry that was found in Texas. The Camry contained 22 pounds of cocaine and blood linked to the victim.
The caller then stated there was a warrant, in Texas, issued for the resident's arrest.
The intended victim attempted to call the number back, while in the presence of officers of the Nutley Police Department. It was discovered that the phone numbers were disconnected.
The target's accounts were all found in order, and they were advised to contact all of their financial institutions and social security to alert them about the incident.
