The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a scam utilizing Facebook. The victim is asked to like former Senator and former Presidential candidate, Rick Santorum.
After you accept this invitation you will receive Facebook messages from someone claiming to work for Santorum. These messages will state the availability of government grants and ask for personal information.
It then will state the different amount of grants and the amount of fees you need to pay up front. These fees are to be paid via Western Union. The grant money would supposedly be sent to the victim via UPS.
