Concealed Firearm Permit Scam

Wednesday December 23, 2020

We have been made aware that a new scam is arriving on everyone’s phones right before Christmas.

Scammers are attempting to gain information from individuals via spam text messages by referencing their supposed concealed firearm permit.

Embedded in the text is a fraudulent link.

Please, do not click any links.

The Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification will never solicit information via text message.  

Even if you do not have a Utah concealed firearm permit you may receive this text message.
