That's why you need to know about these five dangerous Facebook scams that could be putting you at risk.
Facebook uses an algorithm to track users so it can provide targeted ads.
It keeps track if you click "like" on something, or tag photos from specific locations and uses this information for marketing purposes.
What's happening now is, work-from-home scams are showing up on News Feeds that look like legitimate businesses.
The fraudsters could end up turning this scam into a more serious threat as well.
However, financial experts say unregulated investment platforms like this are more like a form of gambling and not actual investing.
Many of these work-from-home posts are just scams, trying to convince users to open an account with a specific broker.
Once Facebook shows you a targeted ad, it should be safe to assume it's not a scam. As long as the ad isn't promoting an illegal venture, it can make it through the vetting process.
If you see a targeted ad promoting a get-rich-quick scheme, your best move is to just pass it by.
