On May 24, 2019, the East Earl Township Police Department has taken several complaints from residents for "phone scams" received. Complainants report the phone number is spoofed to appear as if it is originating from Social Security. When the call is answered, the person on the other end asks the caller to confirm their personal information. In some instances, the caller has threatened to call the "local police" to obtain a "warrant" to arrest the victim.
Please remember, Social Security Administration will never call to verify your Social Security number. Also remember to never give out or verify your personal information. If you are threatened with an arrest warrant, kindly give them our phone number of 717-355-5302. We will be happy to speak with them.
