Potter County officials are warning residents about a scam that says the victim is under investigation for money laundering and drug trafficking.
According to officials, the scammers are sending messages saying the person’s Amazon account was hacked.
If you respond to the message, they transfer you to a fraudulent OIG Federal Agent who says you are under investigation for money laundering and drug trafficking.
The release says you are then asked for personal information relating to bank accounts and specific identification.
The names being used in the scam are OIG Agents David Freeman and Gary Wilson.
If you think you’re being scammed, call Potter County Sheriff’s Office at 806-379-2900
