(New Hanover County, N.C.) - It has come to the attention of county management that politically-oriented robocalls are being made throughout New Hanover County and appear to be originating from a government telephone number.
While robocalls are becoming more popular during election cycles and telephone spoofing is possible with today’s technology, residents should be aware these calls ARE NOT originating from government owned or operated equipment.
All of our internal and external communication systems are being monitored and we’ll continue to work with our information technology staff to ensure county equipment isn’t compromised.
In an effort to not further burden the local telephone infrastructure, residents are asked not to call the government center to report these calls. Again, while it appears the calls are coming from the government center, New Hanover County has not engaged in any transaction to support, finance or facilitate these calls.
