The Mahanoy City Police Department posted the following earlier Thursday after getting a report of a phone scam.
We received a complaint from one of our residents about a scam attempt. The resident received a call from a person claiming to be a family member that needed bail money. If you receive any unsolicited calls looking for money or personal information, ask for a phone number and name and in a case like this ask which department/court arrested your loved one. Please do not give out any personal information bank information or send anyone money.
