The Indiana State Police (ISP) is warning Hoosiers of a fake text message saying the recipient has unclaimed money from the state, WANE-TV reported.
The messenger claims to be from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. The text says to click a link that takes them to a web page asking for personal and confidential information. From there, fraudsters have the ability to access personal accounts or sell that information on the dark web.
The fraudulent link in the text looks like this: https: //uplink-indiana.us/ login
ISP detectives confirmed the department does not send texts or emails asking people to click a link to receive any kind of payment or benefits.
