Scam Alert: You Have NOT Won a Prize

Posted: April 25, 2022, 8:32AM

The latest scam we're hearing about is a text message saying that you've won a free prize.

The text says something like "Your account is paid" or "We have received payment", then the text goes on to say that you are being rewarded.  All you have to do is click on the link.  The text may ask for a credit card (to cover shipping) or other personal information.

DON'T CLICK THAT LINK!  DON'T PROVIDE PERSONAL INFORMATION!

If you think this is real, contact the business (from your statement) and inquire.  Most likely, the text doesn't mention a business.

Do not click on the link.  Do not provide personal information.

Delete the text.
