Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says watch out for scammers sending text messages that include a false package delivery notice and a fraudulent link.

The Texas AG says the text messages usually claim that a package is pending delivery. It asks you to "claim ownership" by providing your credit card and personal information.

Paxton says don't do it.
