SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ — From the IRS phone scam to lottery and sweepstakes schemes to the so-called grandparent scam, it appears that imposter frauds and other criminal scams are more active than ever — and are preying on potential victims in New Jersey through phone calls, emails, and other means.

On Monday, May 3 at 7 p.m., a representative from the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs will join the library for a virtual presentation on how to avoid being scammed.

The Division of Consumer Affairs is your resource for important consumer information. For information about a New Jersey business or professional license, or to report suspected fraud, call our Consumer Service Center at 800-242-5846.
