Beware of Social Media Scammers

(Farmington) Sharing too much information on social media could give scammers and crooks a way to figure out your routine and the best ways to try and steal from you.

Consumer protection expert Lara Sutherlin says people should be limiting their posts to just the people they trust, like restricting their Facebook messages to friends only.

Sutherlin also reminds you to set your privacy settings to ensure that only the people who should be seeing your posts are seeing them.

She reminds Missourians to stay vigilant and to resist the urge to click links or give information online, especially while you’re doing your holiday shopping.
