DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - If you have received requests or messages from what appears to be the Facebook page for Darlington County, authorities have a warning for you.

The personal page under the name "Darlington CountyOffice" is fake, says sheriff's office spokesman Capt. Andy Locklair. Darlington County does not currently have a Facebook page that you can "like," but one has apparently been created in their name disseminating messages that are considered inappropriate.

The sheriff's office advises that if you have received any message from this page, simply de-friend this page or report it to the Sheriff's Office and to Facebook. An investigation is ongoing.

As of Friday morning, it appears the page has been removed.
