page county election coverage

The Page County Sheriff’s Office reports the cellphone mail scam has been reported in the county.

The scam appears to come from a number of  postal services.

Usually the scam starts with the message by text on your cellphone.

The message typically reads that you have a package that needs to be delivered, but it has been suspended due to an incorrect address.

The text will typically have a link to what looks like it originates from the US Postal service or other delivery agencies.

People are advised not to click on the link as it is a phishing scam.

The United States Post Office, Amazon, Google generally none of the agencies like them are going to send text of this nature.

Any type of information update from any of those agencies is done through email.

The email usually will link to a secure website where you are able to verify the information.
