Police are warning about a social media scam purporting a woman has been assaulted.

The post of Facebook has suggested a woman was assaulted in Knighton and provides links to a company providing safety products.

Dyfed Powys Police are concerned that similar posts could target Newtown and other local areas, worrying people into following the links to buy goods.

“Please be aware that if these news stories pop up in your newsfeed, they are a scam," said a police spokesperson.

“No such incident has occurred in Knighton, so please do not be alarmed. Also, don’t be tempted to click on the links to the highlighted safety products.

“Protect your personal details online; stay safe and secure.

“If you have been scammed, or would like advice on how to stay safe, call us on 101, email or get more information from Action Fraud and Get Safe Online.”
