Scam targets senior citizens

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 by CONTRIBUTED ARTICLE in Police Log

Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin and Lehigh County Agency on Aging and Adult Services want to alert area seniors about a scam that recently came to light. It involves seniors receiving phone calls purportedly from the agency on aging and adult services.

Consumers are getting calls that appear to come from that office’s general telephone number — 610-782-3034. Aging and adult services is not making these calls. In fact, the office’s caller ID number would not show that number.
