Police warn of social media scams

Leicestershire Police have warned of two current scams operating in the area.

The first involves people receiving scam messages through Facebook Messenger appearing to be from friends or family requesting use of the person's PayPal account to receive funds from the
sale of items on EBay.

The second involves people falling victim to fraudulent investment schemes, commonly referred to as a 'money flipping' service, offered by users of Instagram.
