Constable says scammer posing as a local business | Local News
Jasper County Precinct 1 Constable Jimmy Hensarling warned over the weekend that a scammer is posing as a local business, and he says the scammer tried to target him along with other people.
According to Hensarling, he and others received a Facebook message claiming to be from Pop’s Kajun Kitchen and saying that they were the winner of a weekly giveaway. However, Hensarling said the food outlet’s Facebook page had been hacked and the scammer was sending out the erroneous messages.
According to Hensarling, if you clicked on the link in the message, it would take you to a website that wanted you to register your personal information, including credit card information.
Hensarling said Pop’s Kajun Kitchen is aware of the problem and they were working to correct it. He also warned those who receive the message to not click on it, and definitely do not enter your personal details or credit card information.
