DARLINGTON - The Lafayette County Sheriff issued a warning late Wednesday, March 20, about scammers hitting up local residents for debit card numbers and home addresses. Residents on Wednesday evening reported receiving cellular text message alerts that their "debit card has been deactivated" and they should call "First National Bank" to manually enter their 16-digit debit card number, according to Sheriff Scott Pedley. "It is highly unlikely that a financial institution would communicate this type of a request to their customers via text messaging," Pedley said.
