DICKINSON CO., Iowa (KUOO) - Local authorities are warning everyone of a new scam that’s making the rounds.
This one involves a text message from purported delivery service stating that a package can’t be delivered because of an incorrect house number. It then tells you to click on a link to arrange to have the package re-delivered.
Authorities say it’s an attempt to collect personal information and that you should not click on the link.
