Alert From New Hampton Police Department


One resident received a call from someone claiming to be their grandchild in Ecuador crying, saying she had been arrested for drunk driving and needed money. The resident asked why she didn’t sound like her granddaughter and the caller said because she had been involved in an accident and had stitches near her mouth, maybe a broken nose as well. Then a man came on the phone saying he was law enforcement and she needed to wire the money right away.  These callers are tricky and can be very convincing.  Thankfully the resident did not fall for it.

A second resident called the police stating that a male left three messages on her answering machine saying he was “Officer Eric Foster” and if they don’t call him back he “issues them Good Luck”. A Google search shows this to be an old scam that is still being used. A third popular scam especially right now is someone claiming to be from the IRS. The recipient of that call hadn’t even filed his taxes yet so he knew something wasn’t right and hung up the phone.

Although law enforcement is unable to track these numbers we want to keep residents aware of these scams and the many other that are going around. If you receive any calls do not give out ANY information or money until the recipient can be verified either by contacting the person direct or preferably through law enforcement. There will NEVER be a situation that is so dire it cannot wait until it’s verified. If any resident needs assistance with verification please call the police department. We would also ask that anyone receiving this notice to reach out to people that do not receive this newsletter and to older residents or relatives whether they live in New Hampton or even New Hampshire. This is a nationwide problem and everyone needs to be careful.
