Phone Scam Warning Issued By Police In Orange County

Police in Walden are warning local residents to be on alert following several reported telephone scams involving opportunistic fraudsters claiming the caller has an arrest warrant out, and immediate payment is needed to clear it.

Investigators received a report this week from a Walden resident reporting that they received a call from a number that appeared to be from the police department, saying that the matter could be fixed by paying a fine of $1,000 with a credit or debit card, with future payable installments.

According to police, schemers can use elaborate systems to spoof caller ID information to appear as a different number. They also advise that they would not ask for money over the phone for such an instance. Anyone who receives a suspicious call or believes they have been scammed can contact police by calling (845) 778-5595.
