BEWARE: Scams from Area Code 876

New Hampshire Sheriff’s Association

“The New Hampshire Sheriff’s Association, representing all 10 sheriffs in the state of New Hampshire, is unanimously in support of FairPoint’s efforts to get the word out about the Jamaican Lottery Scam,” said Belknap County Sheriff Craig H. Wiggin.

“This scam and others like it, tend to focus on the elderly and the most vulnerable among us. It is important to educate the public about these crimes, which are often international in scope.

We urge those with elderly friends and family members to make sure they are aware of the many telephone and internet scams that we in law enforcement are seeing regularly and contact their local authorities with questions or concerns.”
