Ontario County Sheriff: Be aware of scam messages

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Department wants residents to know that if they receive a text similar to the one below, it is a scam and they should not click the associated link.

The Sheriff’s Office does not sell merchandise or solicit for money. Scam texts generally come from untraceable numbers with out-of-area codes. Once again, do not click the link- block the number and delete the message.
