CCW Pfshing text message scam..


Recommended Posts

got this from my county sheriff:


We have recently been informed of a nationwide scam that is targeting citizens with CCW permits. Those targeted by this scam may have received a text message alerting them that their permit needs to be renewed or changed and offers a link to provide the user's information. This link is malicious and has NOT been generated by The Orange County Sheriff’s Department or Permitium. If you feel that you have been targeted or if you have already experienced malicious intent due to this text message, please report the scam to https://www.usa.gov/stop-scams-frauds. We have confirmed that the text messages are being sent randomly from phone numbers to people across the entire nation.  


As always, our goal at the Sheriff’s Department is to be as proactive as possible when it comes to protecting the rights and personal information of our applicants/licensees.

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at ccwpermits@ocsd.org. 

You may also contact us Monday through Friday, 8am to 4pm at 714-834-7229.


Thank you,


Orange County Sheriff’s Department
