Ongoing Phone Scams

The Hopewell Township Police Department has received multiple calls from Hopewell Valley residents regarding a phone scam.

Some messages threaten arrest or fines.

Residents are urged not to give out any personal information if they actually speak with the caller. Residents are also urged not to call the phone number provided if a message was left for them asking for a return call.
