ALERT: PA Supreme Court prothonotary's office phone number
is being used in consumer scam
HARRISBURG -- The Pennsylvania Supreme Court Office of
the Prothonotary is warning people about a telephone scam being used to get
money or personal information.
The scam begins when the caller ID indicates the incoming
call is coming from the PA Courts - (717) 781-6181. That is the prothonotary's
number, however, the identification is being used by scammers. The fraudulent
callers may ask for money or personal information.
If you receive this type of call, hang up or let it go to
voicemail. Do not give out any personal information. The Supreme Court would
never request any personal or identifying information over the phone.
