Facebook Fakir Strikes Again

By WCTA Staff

Around mid-May, an unaffiliated Facebook account was caught sending out Facebook friend requests that looked a lot like the WCTA but was certainly not us!

For starters, we have a few more than 23 friends but even staff was nearly fooled by the close resemblance to the genuine article – one of the only differences is the small ‘t’ in turfgrass versus the genuine article which has an uppercase ‘T’ and spaces between Western, Canada and Turfgrass.

Again near the end of June, the Facebook Fakir struck again – both instances were reported to FB but we’re not going to hold our breath. In the meantime, please remember that unfortunately, there are less than credible motives circulating on social media platforms so be careful what you click!
