From our partners at the Marietta Police Department: IMPORTANT ALERT: (3) residents have reported to us this afternoon that they received a child pornography video in their Facebook INBOX. Please note that this has been reported in other states today as well.
IF you receive this video, you must:
1. NOT share the video with anyone.
2. Notify Facebook immediately.
3. After notifying Facebook, delete the file from your Facebook account. Facebook will automatically notify the appropriate authorities when an inappropriate video is reported.
Sharing this image is considered distribution and you could be criminally charged for doing so. Some people might think that sharing it with the “right person” could help solve the crime. In this case, that is incorrect information and we do not want to see an innocent person get in trouble. We urge everyone to follow the (3) steps above.
