ASU Police discover popular Twitter scam is now threatening Concho Valley residents

News

Approximately one month ago, Angelo State Police received a call from a victim of an online credit card scam. 

The caller stated that their credit card had been used without their authorization at a local Domino’s Pizza establishment. 

A week later, another similar incident was reported. Following investigations revealed that the reports were related to a popular Twitter scam that’s been growing since 2014.

Online scammers are able to access a victim’s name, number, address, and payment information through making social media accounts. In this case, they were posing to be a local food chain with fraudulent advertisements.

Victims of the scam should contact their local authorities and banks right away. 

When online, be cautious and protect your personal information.
