Ongoing Phone Scams

The Hopewell Township Police Department has received multiple calls from Hopewell Valley residents regarding a phone scam. Residents report that a person identifies himself as being with the U.S. Treasury and advises the resident that they have failed to respond to a magistrate or a grand jury notice. 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.

You may report an incident to the IRS at 1-800-366-4484 or send an email to (Subject: “IRS Phone Scam”) describing the phone call you received.
