Pinterest is a great social media network based on pictures of all kinds.
People mainly use it for inspiration – food to cook, places to go, clothes to buy, things to do, funnies, absurdities etc.
But it is also used by scammers. When you a post a picture you can add a link to a website page so scammers post something to make you click and that takes you to their scam website.
Here’s a recent example, posted by an idiot.
The woman in the photo is clearly standing further from the camera in the second photo – even her head is narrower in the second photo.
She looks to have lost weight but who knows how many weeks between the photos and she has a suntan in the second photo so maybe some weeks of holiday occurred in between photos.
However, it is impossible for anyone to lose 5 kilogrammes in2 days.
Oh and the magic herb is just parsley. Drinking parsley tea at night supposedly removes all the fat you’ve eaten that day.
No it doesn’t.
Use Pinterest for entertainment and inspiration but don’t be conned by fake photos.
