NORTH ATTLEBORO — Local police are warning residents to beware of suspicious text messages from scammers claiming to be from a package delivery service.
In the text message, the scammers say a package was found from several weeks ago and provides a link for residents to claim ownership. Police say not to click on the link or provide personal information.
Delivery companies such as DHL, FedEx, UPS and Amazon won’t text messages like the one the scammers are sending, according to police.
Residents can block the number and they can copy the message, paste it into a new text message conversation and send it to 7726 (SPAM), which will send a report to the Federal Trade Commission.
