Candia Police: Beware of these ongoing scams

The Candia Police would like to alert residents about on-going scams that have occurred over the last week or so.


A business reported receiving a telephone call from a male posing as a PSNH worker who threatened to shut off the power immediately unless the employee used a green dot card to make a payment.


Also, a resident reported that a man advised that they had won the lottery and had to pay a fee to get their earnings via green Dot Card.  These Green Dot cards are hard to trace.  These were obvious scams.   


In addition, a mass mailing from HomeServe USA went to residents of Candia as well as other communities advising of a plan that can be purchased to cover the cost of the water service line to your home that comes off a city or town water supply, which there are none in Candia.  A check of Home Serve USA on the Better Business Bureau website showed over 300 concerns.  We are unsure if this is a legitimate plan for persons who have city water, but wanted residents to be aware.


We urge residents to be skeptical of any unsolicited phone calls, e-mails, letters, etc.  Please don’t entertain these people and never give out personal information.  The best advice is to hang up and call the Candia Police if you are uncertain on what to do.  In addition you can report the incident to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office Consumer Protection Bureau at


Several residents have reported receiving phone calls from a man who purports himself as working as a police officer or for the IRS, etc.  The man requests that you send money to clear either an outstanding legal matter, a warrant or for back taxes.


Also circulating are e-mails claiming to be from a friend who is in another country and needs money because they lost their passport/ID’s and can’t use their credit cards.


Another resident received correspondence through the United States mail which included a fraudulent check. You are asked to cash the check and send some of the money to a certain person/location. 


I strongly urge anyone who receives a call, letter, or e-mail to disregard and hang up on the caller, destroy the letter, and delete the e-mail.  Do not give out any personal information.
