CRIME WRAP: Facebook scams, flipped cars, unlicensed driver
FROM social media scams to upside down cars, this is what Blackbutt police dealt with over the past week.
Police from Blackbutt have had a number of people reporting scams through social media platforms over recent weeks.
To minimise the risk, police encourage everyone to only accept friend requests from people you know, do not give out personal details, check your security settings through the social media platforms and only post things you would want strangers to know or see.
Do not give out your bank account details under any circumstances and immediately block any unknown requests from strangers.
If you suspect any suspicious activity on social media, report it through the platform provider.
