BEAUFORT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - Several Eastern Carolina law enforcement agencies are warning about a new Facebook and text message scam.

Beaufort County and Edgecombe County Sheriff’s offices posted on Facebook Tuesday with the warning.

Many residents have received messages saying that there is a discount on a sheriff’s office shirt with a link to order. You are asked to not click the link and to not give them any information.
