PERQUIMANS COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — The Perquimans County Sheriff’s Office wants residents to know about a scam acting as Amazon.

The scam presents itself through email and text messages with the Amazon logo saying accounts are locked due to billing issues.

The message also includes a fake login link “to resolve the issue” where scammers gain access through this.

Perquimans County Sheriff’s Office encourages residents to login through a separate browser or app to see if there is a real issue.
