Gwent police have been notified by a victim that they had received an unknown message on Facebook from a person purporting to be a female, and when they clicked on the attached link this enabled the offender to access their phone. They then proceeded to send messages to all of her contacts, enter their Snapchat account and finally, access and steal from her online banking app. Gwent police would advise that you be cautious in opening any links in messages sent to you randomly by persons unknown to you.

If you do fall victim to such a crime please report this to Action Fraud  – online to or by phone to 0300 123 2040
