Email scam going around Crisp County

Email scam going around Crisp County

CORDELE, GA (WALB) - Crisp County Sheriff Billy Hancock is warning citizens about an internet scam going around. Scammers are e-mailing a fake subpoena.

If you open the link, hackers could get access to your computer. Sheriff Hancock warns you not to open the link or even the email.

"We want the public to know that that's not, number 1, how we subpoena people. If it's a court subpoena it will be delivered to you by hand or it will be delivered by certified mail," said Sheriff Hancock.

Sheriff Hancock said if you don't recognize an email address, then you should delete the mail.
