Hanover Police Warn of Scam
The Hanover Police Department is alerting residents of a phone fraud after reports of a caller claiming to be from the Hanover Police department. According to the complaint, the caller’s ID shows the Hanover Police telephone number of (603)643-2222, but the originating number is hidden.
In these scam calls, the caller claims the recipient owes outstanding fines and demands payment. If the recipient is suspicious or attempts to disconnect the call, they may be told an arrest warrant would be issued.
In recent weeks, similar scams have been ongoing in the area, with parties posing as or claiming to be from the Grafton County Sheriff’s Office or the Internal Revenue Service.
If you are suspicious of a call or believe you have been defrauded, please contact the Hanover Police Department at 603-643-2222.
