Oxford Police Warn of Potential Scams

The Resident State Trooper's Office in Oxford puts out a warning to residents after several complaints.

 

Several Oxford residents have been contacted asking them to give out personal information, including Social Security numbers, in recent weeks, police say.

The complains have prompted the Oxford Resident State Trooper's Office to issue a press release notifying residents of the potential for a scam. This is what the news release states:

"It has been brought to the attention of the Oxford Resident Trooper's Office that over the past several weeks, many Oxford residents have been contacted by either telephone or by mail requesting personal information. It is the opinion of the police that you should not relinquish any personal information to include name, address, Social Security numbers, date of birth, bank accounts or any other information to anyone unless you know who you are speaking (to). Know who you are dealing with. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Nobody is giving out easy or free money. You have worked hard for your money, safeguard it."

Anyone who has questions or concerns about a caller, or wants more information, can contact the Oxford Resident Trooper's Office at 203.888.4353.

Police in other neighboring towns have been putting out similar warnings. The Naugatuck Police Department just put out a warning about a scam targeted toward seniors. Click here to read that announcement.
