Yesterday the Pennsylvania State Police in Warren revealed that fraudsters are attempting to impersonate them in order to defraud people for money. One or more scam callers are impersonating the Station Commander of PSP Warren and requesting that they buy ‘Green Dot’ bank cards for substantial amounts of money to avoid being arrested on outstanding warrants. The Pennsylvania State Police will never ask for payment of anything over the phone; if you are contacted by these scammers report it at AttorneyGeneral.gov.
Pennsylvania’s Turnpike Commission has announced another increase in tolls for the 15th consecutive year in a row. Starting on January 8th of 2023, turnpike fees will increase by an additional 5%; the commission says the increased tolls are for them to meet their obligation of paying between $450 million and $900 million a year to the state.
