Beware of fishy friend request!!
The Dalmeny Hotel, based on St. Anne’s promenade, has issued a warning after it became aware of cyber fraudsters using their name.
They issued this warning – “Unfortunately it has been brought to our attention that there is someone impersonating the hotel via a Facebook page.
Please do not open any messages or links sent from “Dalmeny Resort-Hotel”. Our page does not have a hyphen between Resort and Hotel.
Facebook are aware of the problem and are currently dealing with it.”
This is quite a common scam, and they often contain spelling mistakes, and slight alterations within the trading name.
The scammers send you a friend request, or say that you have won a competition, and then ask for personal information, and/or bank details. Please remain vigilant!!
