The Federal Reserve Made a FB Post About Avoiding Scams… And It’s Getting Destroyed by Trolls
(ANTIMEDIA) — Last August, the Federal Reserve came face-to-face with an army of trolls when it launched a public Facebook page, but whoever runs their social media doesn’t appear to have learned much from the debacle. Last week, the loathed central bank attempted to advise its followers on detecting scams, and it didn’t go well.
Apparently, scammers attempt to swindle unsuspecting individuals by claiming to represent the Federal Reserve, so the bank decided to offer up some advice.
“Fed FAQ: I received a suspicious-looking e-mail that claims to be from the Federal Reserve. Is it a scam?” the Fed’s official Facebook asked before linking users to an official guideline.
Unfortunately for the page’s social media manager, its followers had responses ready to go, and nearly all of them bluntly contended that the Fed, itself, is a scam.
