Henderson County Sheriff Matthew Link announces a series of attempted scams. An individual is contacting citizens via text message claiming to be a local pastor needing donations in the form of Visa gift cards in increments of $100. Sheriff Link advises residents to immediately notify the Sheriff’s Office if they are contacted and block the incoming telephone text number. During the holiday season scams are on the rise. Please remember, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Never give out your personal information or banking information.
