AGRI Aware is warning its social media followers of a fake Instagram account claiming.
The agricultural awareness body became aware of the page on Instagram in recent days and has urged people to be aware of it.
In a post, Agri Aware said: “Please report this account. The information it is reporting is completely false.” The fake account was only recently set up and its biographical details stated: “Congratulations on your chance to get a prize. VERIFICATION on my link for final step.”
