PSP WARNING ABOUT GIFT CARD SCAMS | #socialmedia


State police are issuing a warning concerning some scams that have been reported across the state.

The scams, according to Major Jeremy Richard, the director of the bureau of criminal investigation at the PSP, involve someone buying gift cards after being prompted by email, text or a message through social media.  Richard said that scammers will use any number of schemes in order to get their would-be victims to provide them with gift cards.

Richard is encouraging everyone to keep their guard up and not be fooled by scammers.
