KENOSHA (WITI) — The Kenosha Police Department issued a warning on Monday, January 20th regarding a Facebook scam.

According to police, some Kenosha-area residents have reported receiving messages from their known “Facebook friends” asking if they have a Chase Bank account.

According to authorities, if the person replies that they do have a Chase Bank account, their Facebook friend will then ask for their account number — claiming they can get “grant money” deposited into their account.

Officials say a person then calls the victim, claiming to be a part of the grant deal, and requests PIN numbers and the location of their bank.

The Kenosha Police Department is advising residents to NEVER give out personal information via Facebook.

    I can’t believe how gullible some people are. Next week I will be having 2.5 million bucks deposited into my account and I can keep 25 percent of it. Some kind man from Somalia received an inheritance, and was not allowed to bring it to America where he always dreamed of living. I only had to loan him $9,500 for taxes, passport, and travel expenses!!
