Local police warning public of Venmo scam



If you use the app Venmo, be aware there is a scam going around.

According to the Dighton Police Department, you will receive a text message telling you your Venmo account is about to be charged and If you want to cancel the withdrawal, you need to log on and decline it.

The message allows you to log on with any phone number and password which was confirmed by Dighton Police. It then asks you to verify who you are by entering the bank card number and other personal/financial info.

The scam uses the same colors and fonts as the Venmo App.

Dighton Police is warning the public to not use the pages provided by the text to enter into your account. Go to your Venmo app or use the internet site.

If you did enter the information, contact your bank or credit card lender.
