Police in Maine are warning the public after some residents have received a text from a scammer during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The text claims that you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive or is showing symptoms of the coronavirus. It says you must self-isolate and it directs you to click on a link for more information.
Police are reminding everyone to not click the link if you receive a text of this kind, as it is not a message from an official agency.
"It is, however, a gateway for bad actors to find their way into your world," the Thomaston Police Department wrote on Facebook.
The department wants people to be vigilant against all threats and not become a victim to scammers during this unprecedented time.
