Gift card scam warning

Sheriff deputies remind county residents that only scammers will tell you to buy a gift card, like a Google Play or Apple Card, and give them the numbers off the back of the card. 

No matter what they say, that’s a scam. 

Law enforcement personnel all across the nation emphasize that no real business or government agency will ever tell you to buy a gift card to pay them. Always keep a copy of your gift card and store receipt.
