SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. – Spokane County has discovered a misleading Facebook profile mimicking the Spokane County Interstate Fair as “Spokane-County Interstate’ Fair.”
The page has been active for approximately 1 week and copied several items from the main County Fair page to appear authentic, to include sharing posts and images of upcoming events.
Facebook followers alerted the Spokane County Interstate Fair Office of a possible fake account, after receiving messages to follow a registration link to claim fair tickets and enter credit card information.
The Facebook company has been alerted of the fake account and Spokane County staff hopes to have this issue resolved quickly. Anyone who has received a friend request or message from this imposter page is encouraged to report it to Facebook and then delete the request.
All Spokane County social media pages remain secure. Thank you to all Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers for their continued support and specifically to those who helped in identifying this fake account.
