FRAUD ALERT: So Pas Residents are Being Scammed on Their Cell Phones

Neighbors: A resident alerted us to a scam that they received on their cell phone. It was a text that stated it was from the South Pasadena City Council alerting residents of an increase in robberies and to click a link for a free alarm system.
This text is NOT from the city, so please do not click any links. The links may lead to malware or a virus. Disregard and delete the text.
Please alert your neighbors so they won’t become a victim. Attached is a screenshot of the first part of the message.
