BEAVER, Pa. — Police are warning the community after rumors spread that a Chipotle is moving into downtown Beaver.
A post on social media showed a vacant storefront in the downtown area and claimed a Chipotle was moving in. The ad also asked for people to apply for positions.
Investigators say the whole thing was a hoax and Chipotle is not coming to Beaver. Instead, they say it was actually a phishing scam to get people's personal information.
"If you bite on this and submit your application online for a job posting then they'll ask for your name and personal info Social Security," Beaver police Detective James DeGori said.
Watch the full report from Channel 11's Gabriella DeLuca above to hear from the man who owns a photography studio next to the vacant storefront used in the fake ad.
