The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a scam that’s circulating through text message.
Officials said the message says the recipient has been selected to receive $1,200 through a COVID-19 fund but requires people to click a link to accept the payment.
The link leads to a site designed to collect personal information, authorities said, and the sender is using a cloned phone number.
Officials encourage anyone who has received such a text to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 361-4900.
