Social media can be a great tool to help find lost pets. A post can be shared by people in the area, or even shelter and rescue sites, to better help spread the word. More eyes on a lost pet is always better right? Not always.
Scammers look for signs of vulnerability to find their next victim. Once a post about a lost pet gets shared by people the owner doesn’t know, it can spread far and wide, perhaps falling into the hands of people with poor intentions.
