Police warning over Facebook model audition requests

Police in Northern Ireland have issued a warning over reports young people are being contacted to take part in modelling auditions over Facebook.

Posting on the PSNI North Coast Facebook page officers reminded young people to be wary over who they come into contact with on social media.

They said: "We would like to remind everyone to be wary over who contacts you on Facebook and what information you share with them, even if you have mutual friends.

"If someone contacts you claiming to be from a modelling agency do not take their word for it, do some research on the company.

"Never do something online that you wouldn’t do in public."

If you have been affected by an incident like this report it to police on 101.
