Beware of Phone Scams

Steelton Borough Police would like to alert the public to recent phone scams involving individuals identifying themselves as representatives of the Internal Revenue Service and Federal Reserve System. These scammers are telling people that they owe money and are wanted by police. The callers have foreign accents and some of the recent calls are coming from a New Jersey area code 201. If you receive one of these calls, DO NOT provide any information and hang up immediately. If you believe you have been contacted by a scammer or have any information, you can submit an anonymous Crimewatch tip submission, call 717-939-9841, or contact Cpl. Basonic at
