DOZENS of Cash App scams have been spotted on Facebook.
Researchers say the scams can be found easily with a simple search.
According to Snopes, scam ads have been spotted on Facebook that promise $750 in Cash App rewards for free.
The fake adverts are said to lead to a Google Docs page that will ask you for personal information.
A scam like this could steal your data.
This can result in you being spammed with phishing emails or even identity theft depending on what type of information is given away.
One of the scam adverts noticed by Snopes was posted in May 2021 and hadn’t been removed by Facebook.
If you spot a scam post or advert on Facebook you should report it instantly.
To report a Facebook post, click the three dots in the top right of the post and select “Find support or report post”.
How to stay safe
If an online offer looks too good to be true it often is.
Always check that an offer or advert is from the company it claims to be.
You can do this by checking spelling, website links and having a look on the company’s official webpage.
Never give out personal details to strangers online and be very cautious of where you type banking information.
