Charlotte Issues Social Media Scam Warning
The City of Charlotte is now asking locals to be mindful of social media scams regarding both real and fake community events.
These social media scams concern festivals, craft shows and vendor fairs.
According to a Facebook post from the city, locals should be specifically looking out for posts that are selling tickets or collecting vendor fees.
In some cases these events are real, but the entity accepting payments isn’t connected to the event.
Officials are encouraging people to talk to the event organizer ahead of time to verify they’re on the event’s official page.
