Woman falls victim to Facebook scam, things you should watch out for

SOUTHAVEN, MS (WWBT/WMC) - A woman fell victim to a Facebook scam and is short of hundreds of dollars.

According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB), Bonnie Sinclair set up a Facebook page for her church. As she was setting up the page, a person under the name of Jeannie Marie Short, sent her a friend request.

Sinclair accepted the friend request, thinking Short, who claimed she was a Facebook Online Promo Claims Agent, could help her with the church's page.

That turned out to not be the case.
