Northwest Iowa — Sioux County authorities are warning of a new scam targeting area residents.

Sioux County officials say this most recent scam involves people who have received text messages from someone claiming to be a local church pastor. The texter, claiming to be the pastor, states they have a friend in the hospital battling cancer, and requests that you purchase gift cards, then send them the gift card numbers.

Law enforcement authorities say this IS a scam, and advise that you not respond to these texts, or provide any information to the texter.
