BRAZOS COUNTY, TX — A Brazos County judge's name is now part of a new online scam.
Judge Duane Peters says he started receiving calls from members of the Brazos Valley Council of Government asking him about an online message sent out in his name.
Once folks started responding, they quickly figured out it was all a scam.
"They used my name. It's pretty troubling for somebody. It could make me look bad for having my name out there trying to get gift cards and that sort of thing," said Judge Peters.
A report has been filed with the sheriff's office.
