MIddle Township Police Warn of Door Hanger Scam

Middle Township Police are warning area residents about a possible scam using a "door hanger" that was left on a residence in the township.

The hanger states that it is from Bank of America and the recipient is asked to call a phone number supplied on the hanger. If you call, you are told you are talking to Bank of America and they are a bill collector. You are then asked to enter your Social Security number or account number.

A spokesperson from Bank of America confirmed that this is a scam and not a solicitation from the bank. The Middle Township Police Department is reminding residents to never divulge their personal information to anyone unless they are absolutely sure they know who they are talking to. 

What is unusual about this door hanger, according to the police, is that someone came onto the property and posted it on the door.  The police are asking anyone who observed anything suspicious in their neighborhood to contact the Middle Township Police Department at 465-8700.
