Scammers use Facebook to target flood victims in Worcestershire

Redditch Editorial 23rd Feb, 2020   0

SCAMMERS have been using Facebook to target flood victims in Worcestershire.

Police are warning residents to stay vigilant on the social media giant and not to give out any personal details.

Detective Sergeant Jon Cooper of West Mercia Police said: “It seems there are some suspicious Facebook posts purporting to be from banks, directed at those affected by the floods.

“I would urge people to only go through their personal and official bank and or insurance company direct and do not click any links about lost cards or money via social media.”
