Scammers target UNCW students, community

Friday, October 24th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — UNCW Police say scammers are targeting UNCW student by posing as Wilmington Police.

According to an e-mail sent to the UNCW community today, police say recently there have been a few reports of phone calls to students and members of the Wilmington community from people falsely claiming to work for the the Wilmington Police Department. Investigators say in at least one case, a student was told she must pay a large sum of money to resolve a tax matter.

UNCW Police say they have also received reports that students are concerned that their personal contact information may have been access through a data compromise at UNCW. Police say the university has has not experienced any such problem. Instead, investigators say the callers are using publicly available phone numbers.

Police say the best advice is to use common sense when you receive a phone call from someone you do not know. The advise not sharing any personal information, including financial information. If a caller says he or she represents a specific organization or agency, hang up and find that agency’s phone number via an Internet search. Call that number and tell an agency employee about the call you have just received. This will help you determine the legitimacy of a caller and his or her request. Remember that local, state and federal agencies would not likely call to solicit payment from you during non-business hours, nor would they demand immediate payment by threatening you with criminal or legal action.

If you think you have been contacted by phone scammers or been victimized by such a scam, call the police.
