Welcome to Wantage


Meeting Rescheduled
The Mayor and Committee meeting scheduled for December 11 has been rescheduled to December 4. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. public notice

Beware of telephone scams
A Wantage resident reports that he recently received a telephone call from someone who claimed to be from "Windows Support", and informed that there was a problem on his computer. The caller then attempted to have the resident give remote access for his computer to the caller so the problem could be "fixed". THIS IS A SCAM. NEVER GIVE REMOTE ACCESS CONTROL TO YOUR COMPUTER OUT TO AN UNKNOWN PARTY! Several other Scams are also being attempted in the area, which were reported recently in the NJ Herald. Please heed Police Warnings: Never give personal identifying information such as Social Security numbers, credit card data or banking information to any person which cannot be identified with absolute certainty. If you are contacted by someone identifying themselves as a police officer, federal agent, IRS representative or any other governmental entity over the telephone, or as a Computer Support Individual who you did not contact, extreme caution should be used and no information should be given to that person over the telephone. Thank you.
