Crime Prevention

Due to the rise in fraud related phone and e-mail scams recently occurring, the Princeton Police Department would like to offer you some tips and information.

Most over the phone or e-mail requests for payment(s) involving the use of Green Dot MoneyPakWestern Union, & MoneyGram usually involve some type of fraud/criminal activity.  Even if the phone number showing up on your Caller ID appears to be legitimate, it is most likely is not and has been “spoofed”, which is when a caller deliberately falsifies the phone number sent as the Caller ID number to hide the true identity of the caller. If you are not sure if it is a scam, done either over the phone or by e-mail, please call the Princeton Police Department (609) 921-2100 Option #3 and speak with a Detective, before sending any money to anyone using the above means.

Tips on how to protect yourself from the popular MoneyPak Frauds (taken from the www.moneypak.com website)

  1. Never give your MoneyPak number to someone you don’t know.
  2. Never give receipt information about your MoneyPak purchase to another party.
  3. Use your MoneyPak only to reload your prepaid cards or accounts you control.
  4. Refuse any offer that asks you to buy a MoneyPak and share the number or receipt information by email or phone.
  5. To use your MoneyPak with PayPal or eBay or other online merchants, transfer the money to your PayPal account before you pay the merchant. Don’t email your MoneyPak number directly to any merchant.
  6. Don’t use the MoneyPak to pay taxes or fees to claim “winnings” on a foreign lottery or prize promotion. Unless it’s an approved MoneyPak partner, don’t use MoneyPak for any offer that requires you to pay before you get the item.
  7. Treat your MoneyPak numbers the way you treat cash in your wallet.
