POLK COUNTY SHERIFF WARNS OF SNAPCHAT SCAM

On August 18, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office learned of a scam occurring through Snapchat’s social media accounts.

 

Individuals with Snapchat accounts are receiving messages from what appears to be someone listed in their contacts through the Snapchat app asking for their phone number and/or authentication number. When the phone number and/or authentication number is sent, their account gets taken over and the hacker can gain access to their phone.

Try to verify who you are communicating with on social media and if you believe it is a scam do not provide any personal information.

If you believe you have been the victim of a scam, report it to your local law enforcement agency.
