On Monday, November 14th, 2016, the Lacey Township Police Department conducted a Senior Scams and Identity Theft presentation for the Ladies auxiliary, held at the Knights of Columbus, located at 15 East Lacey Road in Forked River. Lacey Township Police Chief Michael DiBella and Lieutenant Paul Sullivan, Jr were present. The primary presenter, Lieutenant Sullivan, discussed different types of frauds including but not limited to the international lotteries, IRS phone scams, electrical company phone scams, banking emails (phishing), and the more recent “Grandson phone calls” (where the caller acts as a grandchild and requests money to post bail for a bogus out-of-state DUI Arrest). Chief DiBella focused on Internet credit card fraud and preventative safety measures for the upcoming Holiday Season. In addition, Chief DiBella answered questions and concerns in regard to the statewide heroin and opiate epidemic.

The Lacey Township Police Department is taking an active role in protecting our community from the large number of Senior Scams occurring across the nation. Any local community organization interested in having a presentation on scams may contact Lacey Police Chief Michael DiBella at 609-693-6636 ext. 2511.
