CLARK, NJ – The Clark Police Department is warning residents Tuesday night to beware of a phone scam that originates from a New York telephone number that ends in 7907. According to a department Facebook post, the caller is a heavily accented male who claims to be from the United States Treasury Department.
The caller asks for a money wire, and threatens legal action for non-compliance. The post reminds residents that a government agency would not contact them in that way.
The department received several calls from residents reporting the bogus call.
In a follow-up post, the department said that if a call recipient shared any personal information over the phone, they should file a report at the police department.
