On Monday a Baltimore County woman called Maryland State Police stating she had received a call from the number 410-653-4241 which read on her caller id as “Maryland State Government,” which is a number for the Maryland State Police Office of Media Communications. However, when she answered the call, it was a recording to offer credit card services.

Maryland State Police want to make it clear that they have no connection to any credit card company and would never solicit such information or services over the phone from any resident.

If anyone receives such a phone call they should hang up, then contact their local state police barrack.
