A photo is circulating on the Internet that raises some eyebrows.
According to the person who posted the photo, it’s a picture of someone “in our area” going around stealing catalytic converters from vehicles.
While it may well be a real thief caught on camera, the photo is likely not “near you” and will be shared like wildfire.
Here’s what happens: Someone NOT close to you shares these photos with a single goal: to get your money. The scammers hope they can see who is gullible enough to share unsubstantiated posts and hope they can trick these people into falling for a scam in the future.
One thing I’ve noticed about most of these fake posts is this: whoever posts the photo disables the comments.
Do you know why they disable the comments? So that their cover is not blown.
Is the guy in the photo really a catalytic converter thief? Maybe like this. Is this guy standing in a converter thief near you? Probably not as there are posts claiming that this guy is stealing converters from each other in several states within minutes or hours.
So let this be another lesson (in a long line of lessons) about the Internet: Don’t always believe what you see and don’t be hasty in posting before you verify it.
If you shared this photo (or a similar one: unconfirmed), consider going back to your timeline and removing the photo, and be VERY suspicious of any messages you receive, even if they are from a Facebook friend seem to come from.
