Effingham Co. texting scam

Posted: Updated:
EFFINGHAM COUNTY -

There's a new scam for Effingham County residents to look out for.

The scam involves a text message to resident's cell phones telling them to call a number because their account is frozen.

When people called the number, the voice on the other end asked for their bank account information. The key is to not call the number.

Effingham County Sheriff's deputies are receiving a lot of calls about the scam.
