Hurricane

I received an email about my power outage. Is this a scam?

Yes.

In her morning address, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley warned residents of an email scam currently circulating.

“We have a cyber situation going on,” she said.

Scammers tell you they have an update on your outage. Once you click there, they get into your computer.

If you don’t know the person sending the email, delete it. Don’t click.
