As the highly anticipated opening of Lytham House is on the horizon, Facebook scammers have taken the opportunity to try to retrieve credit card details from locals.

Lytham House are hosting a competition offering a £50 voucher and table on opening night in September. Facebook scammers, presumably a local, has created a fake Facebook account posing as the restaurant. The post on the account announces that anyone added to the friends list has won £50 and needs to complete a registration to a website in order to retrieve their winnings.

To sign up to the linked website, it asks for your credit card details which seems suspicious.

We would like to warn all locals that they must not complete this registration form, and to not be fooled by the page.

If you have signed up to the website they are asking you to, please call your bank immediately and cancel your card.
