MAYS LANDING — The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office has been notified that its phone number is being used in a scam with calls requesting money, said Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner on Thursday.

Multiple members of the public have called the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office and reported they had received a call from the prosecutor’s phone number (609-909-7800) and that the caller requested money.

The caller stated that a family member was in jail and needed bail money, Tyner said in the statement.

The public is advised that the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office phone number is not being used in connection with solicitations for money to pay for a family member’s bail, the prosecutor said.

Bail money is also no longer required for release as a result of changes made in criminal justice reform, Tyner said.
