New phone scam
Called both Hackettstown and Mt Olive police to report this scam. They said there has been an increase in these particular calls lately.
Here is a copy of the phone message they left on my machine this afternoon.
"Yes this is Sgt. James like Donna with the Warren County Sheriff's Office calling to speak with the MY NAME and I need to contact us as soon as possible. This is in regards to ongoing civil matter on an emergency service number is 908-462-3755. Again that's 908-462-3755. Ma'am this matter is very urgent and requires your immediate attention. Again I'm Sgt. James McDonald ext. 14. Thank you."
Get Nomorobo on your landline .The Xfinity website call log shows all the robocalls that I never got , it even blocked a couple of calls from congressman Josh Gottheimer as well as dozens of other nuisance calls .
Thanks 97XBAM I just found it interesting that they were using the Warren County Sheriff's office to run the scam. I will check into that.
yup nomorobo on landline and truecaller on cell - I report messages like that to the fcc--
I purchased refurbished Panasonic cordless phones over two years ago for 40 bucks . I've had GE , AT&T , a few VTecs , but these put them all to shame . Large numbers , headset jacks , take cheap AAA rechargeable batteries(original batteries still going strong) , talking caller ID , and will block 250 numbers . Don't really need that last feature with nomorobo . The newer Panasonics also have bluetooth (doesn't need an actual landline connection to use when you get a cell phone call when you link it to a cell phone) , baby monitor , and a simple call block button to block numbers - great phones if you still use landline !
I keep trying to do the Nomorobo thing but it says Verizon traditional landline can't be enrolled.
Just started with Nomorobo a few weeks ago on our landline. It is wonderful! Also have the pleasure of reporting the numbers that still get through.
ok, need i primer on how to set up a verizon land line with this nomorobo.
where do you get it from? how does it work?
I like Mr. Number on iphone - seems to have similar functionality.
