Several more Hudson Valley police departments have joined the list of law enforcement agencies warning about a text-message scam affecting local residents.
The Carmel Police Department warned on its Facebook page, "if you receive a text with an ad for $10 off a Carmel PD hoodie, this is a SCAM. Please do not click the link or send money."
Police in Brewster sent out a similar warning about advertisements for hoodies.
Agencies have been encouraging anyone who receives a similar text to not click on anything, but to report the incident to police and to share the warnings with others.
