Bedford Deputies Warn Residents About Texting Scam

Bedford, VA - The Bedford Sheriff's Office is warning people of a texting scam that's coming into your inbox lately.

They say you will get a text that says something like: "User 2-5-3-8-4: Your Gmail profile has been compromised. Text back SEND-NOW in order to reactivate your account."

If you get this, do not text back. It's a scam, and whoever is behind it wants to take advantage of your computer security concerns to get your personal information.

Contact your phone carrier if you get this message.
