Waldo County officials warn of latest scam

WALDO COUNTY - The Waldo County Sheriff's Department is warning about a new scam targeting local residents.

Officials said a group called "Money Grants" is offering grants of money up to $500,000. The scam is that if you're approved for a grant, they'll ask for money to cover administration fees that could cost thousands of dollars.

 

Money Grants can also only be contacted through text messages.

 

The sheriff's department said if people are contacted by the group they should not give our any personal information by phone or text. They added people should remember if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
