Don't fall for this social media scam

A popular gift exchange on social media is drawing in many unsuspecting vitims.

TAMPA -- A scam that made the rounds on social media in 2015 is popping up on Facebook feeds again.  Be warned – if you take part you may be breaking the law.

It’s the ‘Secret Sister’ gift exchange.  The message asks you to buy a gift card of $10 or more, add your name to a list and then you’ll receive 36 gifts.  Don’t fall for it.  Police say it’s a scam.

It’s the modern day version of a chain letter scheme and is illegal, violating federal law.

Make sure to let your Facebook friends know, so they don't share it!
