Warning: Fake Event Online Targets Adelaide Kids

An online scam is targeting South Aussie kids.

Local Police say a profile using the name of a popular cartoon network has been advertising an event at Glenelg that's turned out to be fake.

It was doing the rounds on social media via a 'buy and sell' page, appealing to kids aged 10 to 14.

Several parents concerned about the legitimacy of the event were blocked when they tried to track down the organisers.

Worryingly, it suggested you could just drop your children off at the venue!

We're being urged to show extra caution with events online, particularly those aimed at kids.

The intentions of the organisers, who have not been identified, are unknown to Police.

If you've noticed any unusual or suspicious behaviour online, contact SA Police on 131 444.
