The North Coventry Township Police Department has been made aware of a new scam. A subject who was pulled over recently and issued a citation by North Coventry Township Police Department received a call from someone alleging to be an officer from North Coventry Township Police Department. The caller, whose caller ID showed to be North Coventry Township Police Department, then began to ask the potential victim for his/her bank and other confidential information for payment. The potential victim felt uneasy and disconnected from the phone call and contacted his/her local police department. The subject's local police department then called to make NCPD aware of the incident.
AT NO POINT WILL AN OFFICER FROM NORTH COVENTRY TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT CALL YOU AND ASK YOU FOR PAYMENT INFORMATION FOR A FINE, CITATION OR CRIMINAL MATTER. If you are called by an officer from North Coventry Township and feel unsure if it is in fact an officer, advise the officer you would like to call them back and only return a call to (610)323-8360 and not a number they provide to you. Please note while on patrol, officers will call you from a cell phone number while on the road and if you do call them back it may take some time for them to return your call. As always, the North Coventry Township Police Department advises its residents to never send money or give personal information to someone they do not personally know.
