If you’re one of the 1,600 fans on the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department’s Facebook page, it’s possible that someone tried to hack your social media account.
This week, users who are fans of page were sent a message via Facebook requesting they click a link to redeem a free gift from the department, reports Fox 8 News.
Police weren’t aware of the scam until residents started arriving at the station and asking for free gifts, said Falls police Capt. Jack Davis.
Police Chief Tom Pozza clicked the link, and the next day, someone attempted to access his Facebook account from Turkey.
Pozza changed his password and has issued a warning for users not to click the link.
He said the city’s IT department is investigating the issue.
Did the Facebook scam offer make it to your social media account? If so, how did you react?
