Scam Alert

*** SCAM ALERT ***
All residents are reminded that a legitimate company will never have you go out and purchase any type of gift cards (Green Dot, Google Play, ITunes, etc.) to pay them for their services. Nor will any company demand payment utilizing a payment transfer company like Western Union. We have received a heavy influx of reports of scammers requesting access to residents computers and then requesting money for fraudulent services. Please remember that Google, Norton, Microsoft or any other company will never contact you via phone and request payment on a prepaid card. Any residents receiving such calls can contact the Barnegat Police Department and/or report to the FBI at
