Beware of text message scam

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Police are warning the public of a possible scam.

According to the Lamoille County Sheriff's Department residents throughout the county have received text messages on their cell phones, regarding their credit and debit cards. The text states that their card has been locked and gives a phone number to call. THAT number then prompts the caller to enter their card number.

Police are advising NOT to call the number or input your credit card number. Instead, contact your bank directly.
