Kentucky State Police wants to remind area citizens of various online scams that have been circulating online.
Over the past several weeks, KSP reportedly received numerous reports of various email scams sent to unsuspecting individuals.
According to state police, these scams are commonly referred to as phishing scams.
Police say the emails often look official, but usually include poor grammar and often ask for correspondence to be sent to a foreign country.
State police advise the best rule of thumb is to immediately delete any messages which appear suspicious and to never respond to a suspected scam.
