Public Service Announcement: potential telephone scam

Review this information on a potential telephone scam in the Township of Langley.

Public Service Announcement: the Township of Langley has received reports from residents of a potential scam where individuals are being contacted by telephone with the caller claiming to be conducting a survey on behalf of the Township of Langley and asking for personal information.

 

The Township of Langley has not authorized any organizations or individuals to call on our behalf. We rarely conduct telephone surveys and would not ask for personal information.

 

Unfortunately, “phone masking” and related scams do occur given the inherent challenges with publicly listed telephone numbers and technology, so we remind all citizens to not respond to these calls and recommend calling the Langley RCMP non-emergency line at 604-532-3200 to report them.

 

We thank the public who alerted us to this so we may warn all Township citizens.
