Police Warn Of Latest Online Scam

 

If you've received a Facebook message from a friend or relative telling you they've just received a government grant or won money and start giving you information on how you too can be so lucky, delete it immediately. 

The message is actually from a scammer who's either hacked your friend's account or created a copy profile by stealing their images and information. 

Because the message is from someone you know the scammers are hoping you'll trust what they're telling you. 

This is the latest version of the "Advanced Fee Fraud" because you will be required to pay an up front fee for tax or processing to obtain this so called free money. 

Other versions of this scam are designed to trick you into giving over personal information by clicking on a link and asking for bank details and other personal information.
