I got it and deleted immediately cuz I knew it was a scam mainly cuz I don’t have a Wells Fargo account 🙄

Got it the other day. Deleted it. Don't deal with them.

I just received this text this morning, but a different phone number appeared on my message.

Got the exact same one, reported it as junk

I got it too.

I got one too

Thanks for sharing.

Scammers have nothing productive to do than to steal someone else's personal information. I now just got this phony text message just now.

I've gotten emails about that but since I've never had an account with them I just put it in my spam folder, 🤪 scammers are the worst of the worst in our society and most of them don't even live in the USA.

I block all phone scammers.

Thank you.

Just got one claiming to be from Navy Federal, phone number listed is 866-547-0038. I don't even have a Navy Fed acct.

The Feds need to start prosecuting these scumbags that prey on the innocent to the fullest extent of the law.

I highly recommend this book. It provides some very good lessons on how not to be a victim: www.amazon.com/Gift-Fear-Gavin-Becker/dp/0316235776/ref=sr_1_1?crid=W7CB4QIJO8VK&keywords=the+gif...

“When a hero falls an angel rises”

We had the honor of escorting Investigator Lonnie Tuthill #210 on his last ride.

There are so many words we want to say but are speechless in our pain and loss.

Lonnie, you served our office and community with a caring heart. It has been such an honor to know you and to have you as part of our family.

We will think of you fondly every time we place that badge over our hearts. We will carry on….you go rest now in the sweetest of peace.

Beautiful words of love and admiration. Lonnie Tuthill came to me 25 years ago as a part of the albemarle County police Department family…what a gentle soul.

Thank god they got this Reggie off the streets 😅

How did Greene county get ahold of a saltwater soaked bale of dirt weed that washed up in Vero Beach Florida in 1982?

That’s not marijuana that’s mulch that’s why it’s still so much 😂😂🤷🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️ he couldn’t get that off if he wanted to

35lbs of sticks and seeds. High grade

Great work! Thank You for doing your best to keep it off the streets!

Is this item still available?

I just came for the comments 😂

I don't snort or shoot up weed myself, cuz drugs are bad, mmkay...but this commentary 😂. Ahhh...I love living near rural communities where a small time dealer gets busted, everyone that knows him starts a war airing his personal drama in the comments, while strangers roast him (and the police). What a time to be alive. Happy Holidays, everyone.

for everybody putting there 2 cents in everybody else’s business and not worry about them self, leave my sisters name out ya mouths and on scott (my brother) behalf everyone mind your business, he will pull his time that he gets and ain’t gonna snitch cause that’s not him. his crime is on him not y’all so keep your opinions to yourself and your BIG a** noses out our business cause it don’t involve you or your opinions. PERIODTTTT.💪🏼 have a blessed day and stay safe.

The comment section did not disappoint 😂.

Dude got arrested and publicly roasted, tough week

Well first that looks like more than 750 in cash, unless they laid it to make it full, second, half of yall tripping because you now have to find more stuff 😂 last fighting on social media doesn't change this fact that he's gone for awhile. Regardless I like Scott he's not a bad person he just made poor decisions I really had/have hi hopes of a turn around and that he'll continue to try and do right. This is someone son brother love on have a little more respect

If he wasn't selling coke, I'd say leave him alone.

Is that tobacco!? 😂😂

People are about to start whining that "Greene is dry AF right now", their plug is in custody, lol.

Man out here stuck in 2004 selling Reggie. I’d be ashamed to be arrested for that 🤣🤣

😂🤣😂They still busting people for weed? Then gunna flex like they did something 😂🤣 what a waste of taxpayers money.

"Another one bites the dust"... Great work and congratulations to Greene County Sheriff's Office Investigations team. You are all awesome!!

PRAYERS SENT TO ALL OF THE FAMILY,

Keep getting them! Next!!!!

I didn’t know they still made swag.. 35 lbs for 500..

I’m just over here offering condolences to whomever buys this Mexican ditch Ouid and smokes it.

Great job Greene County Sheriff's Department for getting these drugs off the streets.

That looks like big bags of dirt !

Looks like he had a green thumb .. ppl need to take inconsideration when you mess with drugs it’s dirty money meaning no Snitchin stuff happens over that’s why if you can’t be tough stay out the game ..

It would be great if we could find whoever keeps “losing” paint out of the back of their truck.

What a very honest group

I drove through there at 7am, so it was after that.

SHARING for you.

Hopefully they will be able to get back, thanks for holding
