Online Security – Facebook Profiles

It has come to our attention that there is another ‘fake  facebook profile’ going around.

The users will friend request you or message you as an initial contact, they will in our case usually have a few cycling pictures on their profile and/or may contact you saying they’re new to the area.

If you get a friend request on social media or Strava (or any other location tracking service) be mindful of your privacy settings and who can see what you have and where you keep it as well as when you’re out. If you don’t actually know the person sending the request be cautious, and if in doubt leave them out.
