LIVINGSTON, NJ — Administrators from Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC) are warning the public about a potential scam after hearing that individuals are approaching homes within the community posing as SBMC representatives.

"If anybody stops by your home and claims to be from Saint Barnabas Medical Center, please be aware that they are in no way affiliated with us," the health center said in a statement on Sunday afternoon. "Please do not open the door, and call the police immediately.

"Unfortunately, there are several people knocking on doors, claiming to be representing the hospital. We do not have any people working for the hospital knocking on doors or visiting homes in the community. We appreciate your understanding, and we hope you're staying healthy and safe.”
