Texting Scam: Beware Fake Messages from ID Bureau


From the Identification Bureau:

A texting scam is making the rounds and trying to get personal information via a fake notification. This message does not come from the Buncombe County Identification Bureau. Some people have reported getting a message along the lines of: "Your concealed carry permit is ready. Enter details here," with a line to a website.

If you have any questions about notifications that might be from the Identification Bureau, please contact us at (828) 250-4665.
