Police Awareness Alert

The Bordentown Township Police Department would like to advise residents of the following ongoing scams.

Gypsy Burglaries

The following is an example of a Gypsy Burglary which commonly occur during the warmer months of the year. These suspects target elderly residents during the daytime hours. Please advise your family members if you believe they may not be aware of the circumstances. Suspects may use the following ploys: roofing contractors, driveway seal coating and many other home repair identities. If their vehicle is not properly marked and the visit is unsolicited, homeowners are encouraged to contact the police department to properly identify the involved parties. Use of walkie-talkies is very common during these scams. 

"On 04/22/14 at approximately 1300hrs an unknown male approached the residence of an elderly woman advising her that he was from Triple A Tree Service and that he had be contracted by the property owner whom resides behind her, to remove several trees. The unknown suspect, asked the elderly women to step outside into the backyard with him so that she could show him, her property line. The victim advised the suspect that she needed to get her husband who was also home because he deals with that stuff. The elderly couple exited there residence and proceeded to the backyard with the suspect. As they were walking to the far corner of the backyard, the victim advised that the suspect was on a radio while they were walking speaking to someone, but she could not hear what was being said. The suspected drew the elderly couples attention to the deepest part of the backyard, where he alleged that he had to remove several trees. After approximately 10 minutes the elderly female victim became so aggravated about the work that needed to be done, she began to walk back toward her home, with the suspect following behind her. As she got back to the driveway she noticed a second individual walking out of her driveway toward the street. She asked the suspect who was with her, " Who is that?" The suspect replied, " He's on my team." Both suspects fled the scene on foot. There was no vehicle description.A short time after the two suspects fled the scene the victim discovered that her master bedroom was entered and several pieces of jewelry were missing from on top of her dresser."

DEA Extortion Scam

The Drug Enforcement Administration is warning the public about criminals posing as DEA special agents or other law enforcement personnel as part of an international extortion scheme.

The criminals call the victims (who in most cases previously purchased drugs over the internet or by telephone) and identify themselves as DEA agents or law enforcement officials from other agencies. The impersonators inform their victims that purchasing drugs over the internet or by telephone is illegal, and that enforcement action will be taken against them unless they pay a fine. In most cases, the impersonators instruct their victims to pay the "fine" via wire transfer to a designated location, usually overseas. If victims refuse to send money, the impersonators often threaten to arrest them or search their property. Some victims who purchased their drugs using a credit card also reported fraudulent use of their credit cards.

Impersonating a federal agent is a violation of federal law. The public should be aware that no DEA agent will ever contact members of the public by telephone to demand money or any other form of payment.

The DEA reminds the public to use caution when purchasing controlled substance pharmaceuticals by telephone or through the Internet. It is illegal to purchase controlled substance pharmaceuticals online or by telephone unless very stringent requirements are met. And, all pharmacies that dispense controlled substance pharmaceuticals by means of the internet must be registered with DEA. By ordering any pharmaceutical medications online or by telephone from unknown entities, members of the public risk receiving unsafe, counterfeit, and/or ineffective drugs from criminals who operate outside the law. In addition, personal and financial information could be compromised.

Anyone receiving a telephone call from a person purporting to be a DEA special agent or other law enforcement official seeking money should refuse the demand and report the threat using the online form below. Please include all fields, including, most importantly, a call back number so that a DEA investigator can contact you for additional information. Online reporting will greatly assist DEA in investigating and stopping this criminal activity.

Phone Scam

The Bordentown Township Police Department would like to advise residents of an ongoing, nationwide telephone scam. The scam involves messages being left on an answering machine by a supposed IRS agent in regards to unpaid taxes. The caller leaves a callback number as bait. When the victim calls back, they are routed to another "Agent" who instructs that past due taxes must be paid immediately and can only be paid via Greendot Money Pak cards. The "Agent" may ask for your zip code. They will then instruct the victim to the nearest location that offers Greendot cards. Once a Greendot pin is provided over the phone, the money cannot be recovered. These individuals will also spoof their phone number to resemble a local authority on your caller ID. Please be advised that this is a scam holds no legal ramifications whatsoever. If there are any questions regarding suspicious phone calls, your local police department can be contacted for further guidance.
