Look Out! Fraudsters Are Using “Black Lives Matter” To Scam You!

Did you know that the largest pro-Black Lives Matter page on Facebook was a scam tied to a white man in Australia?

The page had accrued 700,000 Facebook followers, almost double the amount of the official Black Lives Matter Facebook page and is linked to several online fundraisers which garnered $100,000 in donations, according to CNN. At least some of the money was reportedly transferred to Australian bank accounts.

CNN reported that Facebook only deleted the page a week after the news outlet reported it to the company. The above screenshot of the fake Black Lives Matter Facebook page.
