Horseheads Police warn of uptick in phone call scams

HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - Horseheads Police are warning of the latest phone scam.

It said many people have reported phone calls from people posing as representative from NYSEG and Apple.

The caller will claim an outstanding bill when claiming to be NYSEG. Apple callers get someone claiming errors coming from a computer.

"They reroute these through different countries," Chief Thomas Stickler of the Horseheads Police Department, said. "A lot of times they operate out of different countries so it's really tough for us to prosecute."

He added they do look into these cases, but there's not much they can do.
