Warning: Don't give anyone access to your Instagram account
Fraudsters have found a new target, Instagram.
Peel police warning about a scam on the popular mobile photo-sharing site.
Police say they have received reports of people allowing a user to access their own personal Instagram account to advertise the sale of items such as cellphones.
They say other users seeing these posts on their friends' accounts assume the source must be legitimate and are falling victim to a fraudulent sale.
Investigators say that, based on reported incidents, young people are particularly vulnerable to this scam.
