The Ticonderoga Police Department has received several reports of a new tactic used by telemarketers recently. Although the tactic does not appear to be unlawful, residents have felt tricked into answering calls they otherwise would not.
Telemarketers have been using phone numbers with the 585 prefix to contact local residents. People are more apt to answer those calls believing them coming from a person here in Ticonderoga. The department has not received any complaints that the goods or services offered are an illegal scam; rather only using the 585 prefix is a deceptive tactic to get more people to answer their sales calls.
Residents are reminded that telemarketers are trained to keep people on the line through conversation and other ploys. Do not think it rude or inappropriate to hang up on a caller if you uninterested in their product or service, or if you feel their sales attempt is too aggressive.
Another service available is the Federal Trade Commission’s “Do Not Call Registry”. Signing up for this service prohibits telemarketers from contacting your phone number. You can sign up for this service at the following website:
As always, contact an officer at the Ticonderoga Police Department immediately if you feel you are a victim of a scam or an attempt to steal your identity.
