Scam Alert

Official are warning the public about a scam involving popular online retailer Amazon survey 

The picture above is one of many that AV residents have received, it looks real due to local numbers. 

Within the text, there will be a link that takes you to a fake Amazon page that offers you to take a "free survey." The survey will then ask for your credit card information to pay for shipping, and it will automatically sign you up to receive a product each month with a charge of $98.95. 

This isn’t the first time that spammers have used SMS to send out fake messages, but more people appear to be receiving this specific package delivery scam message. 

As the recipient of one such attack, we decided to open the link and see what exactly is being shared.

We DO NOT recommend you open the message or click on any links. Instead, you should immediately block the sender and delete the message.
