The Hopedale Police Department is issuing a scam alert…if you use the app…VENMO. The scam uses the
same colors and fonts as the VENMO app…you’ll receive a text message telling you, your account is
about to be charged and if you want to cancel the withdrawal…you need to log on and decline it. The
message allows you to log on with any phone number and any password…it then asks you to identify
who you are by entering the bankcard number and other personal or financial information. Hopedale
Police reminding residents to not use the pages provided by the text…instead, go to your VENMO app or
use the internet site. If you did enter information…contact your bank or credit card lender.
