Dutch Police Fights Against Fake Gold On Twitter

The Dutch National Police Services (KLPD) is warning people for the first time through Twitter for fake gold sellers, who started to be active again according to the National Police Agency.

The Police Corps recently received the first alert from a victim this year, according to the National Police Agency.

“Every year they try again” said a spokesman for the Police corps. The police posted a message on twitter for the first time with hash tag, #goudverkopers (gold sellers).

The hash label indicates that the message is about a specific topic. “This way we can quickly warn people and indicate on which locations there is trouble.”

Fake gold sellers try to attract drivers in parking lots, gas stations, along the highway or while driving to sell fake gold jewelry, often with a sad story or intimidation.
