Scammers Targeting Paulsboro, Nearby Residents After Train Derailment
The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the County Office of Consumer Affairs are warning residents of ongoing attempts by scammers to lure unsuspecting residents into giving out their personal information.
After the train derailment accident in Paulsboro over the Mantua Creek, unidentified people have been knocking on doors in the Paulsboro community stating that if residents would sign a release not to file a claim, they would receive $800 cash. In this scam, the scammers are asking for personal information such as social security numbers. This is not true and residents should call the police immediately if anyone knocks on their door claiming to give cash for not filing anything.
