THOMASTON, Maine (WLTX) — A police department is warning people about coronavirus scam text messages they might be receiving.
The Thomaston, Maine Police Department posted on Facebook about the problem. The post included a screenshot of a message that read, "someone who came in contact with you tested positive for symptoms of COVID-19 & recommends you self-isolate/get tested."
The message then gives a link for people to click on. Police say it's a scam.
"If you receive a text message like the one pictured below, DO NOT click the link! It is not a message from any official agency," the police wrote. "It is however a gateway for bad actors to find their way into your world."
"The virus is not the only invisible enemy. Be vigilant against all threats!"
