Another Southern Sheriff Shirt Scam Surface

Another sheriff’s office is reporting a scam where people are being messaged about being able to buy sheriff’s department shirts that don’t exist.

Weeks after the Broome County Sheriff’s Office alerted residents that it had not opened a “merchandise store”, the Tioga County Sheriff’s Office is advising residents that it is also not sell merchandise and has not authorized any company to sell anything representing the office.

Several residents responding to a Facebook post from the sheriff’s office claimed to have received the suspicious text messages.

Savvy residents said the number one clue to the scam was that the text came from a number outside of the 607 area code.

The majority of those targeted said the call was identified as coming from an 802 area code. This area code is for the entire state of Vermont.

The Sheriff’s Office is advising people not to follow the website link contained in the message as it may compromise the recipient’s internet security and personal information.
