A police department in Maine is warning the public about an apparent scam going around via text messaging.

“DO NOT click the link! It is not a message from any official agency. It is however a gateway for bad actors to find their way into your world,” the police department wrote on Facebook.
🚨🚨SCAM ALERT🚨🚨If you receive a text message like the one pictured below, DO NOT click the link! It is not a message…
Anyone who receives the text should contact their local police department.
