Indiana State Police warns against potential texting scam

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Detectives from the Indiana State Police have recently received complaints about a potential scam in the form of a text message from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development claiming the recipient has unclaimed money from the state.

The message gives instructions to click a link, which takes the recipient to a webpage asking for personal and confidential information.

Detectives have communicated with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and confirmed that they will not send a text or email message asking individuals to click a link to receive any type of benefits or payment.

The fraudulent link received in the text message may look something like https: //uplink-indiana. Us/login
