Sioux County Sheriff

*Scam Alert* Latest Snapchat scam information

The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office would like to make Sioux County citizens aware of a scam going around using the social media app Snapchat.

In the latest reported incidents, scammers request to follow others using a fake account and make attempts to gain various inappropriate photos (“nudes”). Once the scammer receives these photos, they demand that the user send them funds electronically or they will make the photos public.

We want to remind all Snapchat users to only let people you know follow you and not to follow anyone you do not know; we also urge parents to please remind your children of this on regular basis and check up on them.
