TACOMA, Wash. — Did you get a recent Facebook friend request from Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor?

It’s probably not him. Not that Pastor isn’t a friendly person, but…

Pastor issued this statement Monday: “FACEBOOK HACK ALERT!

“Apparently someone is playing games with my name and picture and pretending to be me. They are not. So if someone who appears to be me asks you to ‘friend’ them . . . it ain’t me. It’s a scammer and delete ’em pronto. Thanks”
