TOMS RIVER – The Toms River Police Department is warning residents about a recent phone scam involving money.

  A scammer will call stating they are from Toms River Police and there is an emergency with a family member. They then ask for them to provide money quickly.

  “These scammers will do all they can to keep you on the phone and engaged. They can be very convincing,” Toms River Police said.

  Toms River Police stated that they will never ask for money over the phone.
