New Mail Scam

Dear Wentworth Residents,

Please be aware of a new type of mail scam that has surfaced in the Wentworth area. The scam consists of a Wentworth resident, property owner, or business owner, receiving a piece of mail that is titled "Loan Information Enclosed-Time Sensitive".

On the outside of the envelope in the upper left hand corner it will say, Administrative Offices 2018 Wentworth, NH 03282-3503. This will come as presorted first class mail but it is a scam so please do not respond to it.

Inside is what looks to be a check, made out to the person the letter is addressed to, and it will say it is from "Pinnacle Lending Funds Disbursement Center". There will be a toll free number listed with a dead line for when you are asked to return a call.

Once again this IS A SCAM, so please do not respond to them in any way. If you have any questions regarding anything that you receive either by mail, or, by phone message, please do not hesitate in contacting your police department.

Thank You,

Chief Wallace Trott
