We are aware of a recent scam where individuals are receiving phone calls from what appears to be the primary phone number for the New York State Offices of the Inspector General (212-635-3150). The Office is working with Law Enforcement to investigate the matter.
The Offices of the Inspector General do NOT make calls from this number. Anyone who receives a call FROM 212-635-3150 should disregard the call. As a reminder, we urge citizens not to provide personal or sensitive information from unsolicited callers.
Individuals seeking to reach the office may continue to call 212-635-3150 or 1-800-367-4448.
The New York State Division of Consumer Affairs has issued an alert on this matter. Please click here to read the announcement.
