This scam is circulating through Ocean County, officials say.

Several police departments in Ocean County warned the community of this scam according to patch.com. The scam uses phone numbers of Comcast and Xfinity so it looks like someone calling from these companies. They are offering an upgrade on television service and offer the customer to purchase gift cards. Don't purchase any gift cards, that would give the caller information. If this happens to you, contact your local police department.

I hate these scammers, just like you. Please, never give out any information. Just hang up.
