Phone Scam Alert


The Hamburg Township Police Department has received several reports recently from concerned residents regarding phone calls that they have received from a New York phone number (area code 516). In the phone call people are being told that they have 4 outstanding warrants and that the “local police department” will arrest them on the warrants if they don’t take care of them. This is a scam…please do not provide any personal information or respond to the phone call.

Please note the following:

1. No police department will ever attempt to have you “clear up” a warrant, post a bond or pay a fine over the telephone.

2. If you receive a call from someone reporting to be a police officer and you are suspicious about their true identity, please ask them for their name and the name of the police department for whom they work. Then hang up and either call that police department (using a phone number from a reliable source) or call your local police department and ask that they help you verify the legitimacy of the officer.

3. Please call your local police department and report if you are the victim of a scam attempt.
