A warning

The Guardia Civil and the National police warn us about various scams on social network sites including Facebook and Twitter. There are also warnings about fraud being attempted on WhatsApp.

On Facebook, the scams usually take the form of a raffle for a new mobile phone or offers of cheap sunglasses. Basically, any offer that is too good to be true is usually just that. You are normally asked to give information to take part in the offer which the crooks will then use against you.

Although these services and the Internet in general are invaluable tools in our modern day lives, they are also a great place for crooks to try and con us out of money.
