Miami-Dade Police warn of fake message making rounds on social media

MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami-Dade Police are warning of a fake message making the rounds on social media.

The message warns against an alleged notice that appears to come from the county, telling women to be wary of children wandering the streets by themselves. The message said the children will have a sheet of paper with their address on it, and ask the women to take them to the address. However, the fake posts claims the address is really a location where gang members would rape the women.

However, the message and warning is fake. Police said the message is nothing but a hoax, and the message is not from them or from the county.

Police also said they have no intelligence to support the message’s claims.
