Beware of fake text message offers
FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — MAY 2, 2012 –
The office of Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig says it has received complaints about some text message scams making the rounds.
One in particular starts with “Dear Walmart Shopper,” and promises a $1,000 gift card. Another says “Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad 3!” Both ask you to click on a link or go to a website.
They amount to a trick trying to get personal information from victims.
“We strongly encourage you to delete the text message,” said a D.A.’s office representative.
