Killeen police officials are warning the public that con artists are increasing their efforts to bilk residents out of their hard-earned money through popular social media websites.
According to police, victims include individuals who bank with USAA and other well-known banks, who message on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about ways to make money.
The victims end up giving their debit cards, online passwords and other bank information to the scammers, who then use the information to withdraw money from victims’ accounts.
The police advised residents to avoid giving out any personal information and to notify KPD if they think they are being scammed.
