Branson police are warning residents about fake Facebook posts.
Police say the posts are about topics like attempted kidnappings at a store, a baby being found or being followed home. Police say the best way to tell if a post is genuine is to
check if the profile is a page rather than a profile with a picture of a person.
Other red flags are if the account is new, if the post is from someone who
recently joined the group, if the person posting is not from the area or if the
same text appears on several posts.
