Troy law enforcement officials have received reports of harassing phone calls being made, particularly to senior citizen residents of the area, by particularly insistent and often rude callers who claim they are representing local businesses to whom the residents owe money. Some of these calls are being made to residents at home and others to the places they work.
These callers are asking for personal information as part of the scam.
Residents are reminded never to reveal personal identification or financial information over the phone. Anyone receiving such calls is advised to go to the business the caller claims to be representing in person and discuss the matter if they have any questions.
