The FBI is reportedly investigating several incidents where someone impersonating Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary is sending text messages to Republican lawmakers.

The Wall Street Journal reported the texts purportedly came from Press Secretary Alyssa Farah and asked the whereabouts of certain GOP members. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., has received several of the messages and told the WSJ similar texts have been received earlier and all had been forwarded to law enforcement.

The White House has also been alerted and considers the texts to be a potential security threat so it has had the hoaxer’s phone number blocked from contacting any White House phones, a government spokesperson told the WSJ.
