MARION — The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is warning local businesses about a scam on the Internet that is circulating and appears to be targeting businesses, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office.
The email scam states, “Please kindly review the document I just uploaded for you on Google secured drive.”
There also is a PDF link attached and when a person clicks on the link, it pulls the contacts and any financial information from the computer, according to Mjr. Aaron Corwin of the MCSO.
“After doing so, a mass email goes out to all your contacts with your information asking for donations for various reasons,” Corwin said.
Any business or individual who receives the email is advised to delete it and not open the attachment.
