Beware phone scam citing North Bergen police

NORTH BERGEN – A resident recently received a phone call from someone claiming to be a police officer from the North Bergen Police Department, demanding they make a payment for outstanding charges or a warrant will be issued.
They further provided a phone number for them to call and make payment. This is a scam and the scammer can “spoof” the number to make it look like they are calling from any number they wish. No police department will call you to make a payment over the phone. If you have been victimized by this scam, you are advised to contact the North Bergen Police Department at (201) 392-2100.
