MCSO warns of new scam

By  | 

MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KJCT)- A new scam has been discovered, this time asking for people to send a picture of a gift card to the scammer.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office says that the scammers are posing as local organizations and churches that are trying to trick people into buying gift cards for people in need.

The scammers are taking it one step further and are using people's real names who belong to the organizations of the church they are pretending to be.

These scams are showing up in both text messages and in emails. Somehow, the scammers are even spoofing the phone number of the organization they are trying to pose as says the MCSO.
