(KMOV.com) – The Better Business Bureau says they are sending out an alert warning everyone about scammers using Facebook to con you out of your money.

Along with the BBB’s warning on August 2, News 4 received a call from Bonnie in Farmington, Missouri. She says she received a message on Facebook telling her she may have won hundreds of thousands of dollars.

But first, Bonnie says she was told to send them some of the money, which is always a bad idea.

If you are ever offered large amounts of money and then told you have to send money to claim it, it is a scam.
