The Northern York County Regional Police Department is alerting people to a scam email that could defraud people.

The illegitimate email appears to be from Verizon and indicates that the company was unable to charge the receiver's credit card. It also requests the receiver to click a link to update credit card information, police said.

Anyone who received the email and provided credit card information should look for unauthorized charges and cancel the credit card, police said.

Additionally, anyone who is a victim of the scam should call 911 or local police.
