Social media warning: Be careful who you send explicit photos to
CURRY COUNTY, Ore. -- The Curry County Sheriff's Office is issuing a warning about a social media scam.
They say a scammer will 'friend request' another person on Facebook and then send a message that leads to a sexual conversation.
The sheriff's office says the scammer will then threaten to publish the victim's explicit photos and ask for a settlement of money in exchange for them to be deleted.
If you are a victim of this scam, contact your local law enforcement agency.
