BBB is warning Facebook users that sharing a certain kind of attention-grabbing post might put their friends at risk of falling victim to a scam.

You may see a gut-wrenching post about an injured, lost pet or missing child and to help you share the post to your own profile. After you share the post, a scammer changes the original post to a deceptive rental ad or a survey link that “guarantees” a cash prize.
