The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) have asked us to tell you about a rise in online social media scams.
What are the concerns?
The PSNI say there have been more reports than usual of online scams, where people try to ask users to send money or gift vouchers
Scammers are building friendships with young people on some platforms and then asking them to send money or gift vouchers
How to avoid scams:
Remember to only talk with, and share your username or contact details with, people online that you know offline
Understand how to block and report anyone who asks you for money
Talk to an adult you trust if anyone tries to become friends with you online
Be aware of anyone pressuring you into making fast decisions or if you have to say no multiple times
