The Pennsylvania State Police have issued a warning about an ongoing telephone scam. Fraudsters who are posing as representatives from the FBI, DEA, and US Department of Treasury have been calling individuals claiming that there is a warrant for their arrest and demanding payment in the form of gift cards from Apple iTunes, Nike, Target, and Walmart. Law enforcement will never coerce or demand payment to resolve legal issues. Troopers are reminding residents to properly verify the legitimacy of any monetary solicitation prior to complying with the request or providing any personal information. When in doubt, please contact your trusted, local NexTier Banker to help you identify the authenticity of these requests.
