SHERIFF REPORTS SCAMMERS TARGETING LOCAL HISPANICS

AN ATTEMPT TO EXTORT MONEY   

Star60

Recently investigators from the Henderson County Sheriff's Office have been made aware of persons targeting the Hispanic community.

The scammers are attempting to extort money. It appears that individuals are targeting Facebook accounts, going to the public view of family photos and then contacting the parents by text message telling them they know where they live and they are going to harm their family unless money is paid.

The pictures being sent can be very graphic and display significant violence.

We are asking the community not to yield to this pressure and do not send money.

If you have been subject to an attempted extortion of money through similar threats of violence towards your family, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 828-697-4911.
