GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Spartanburg Police Department is warning residents about a new scam targeting people in the area.

Officers said residents have reported that they received a text message from someone pretending to be from the Spartanburg Police Department. The message states that officers are selling t-shirts at a discount and includes a link to click.

According to officers, they are not selling t-shirts and have not sent out any messages with a clickable link. They added that you shouldn’t follow any links from an unknown source.

Anyone impacted by this scam should contact the Spartanburg Police Department.

Last week, multiple other agencies warned about a similar scam targeting residents.
