Please take some time to read this Action Fraud article on over sharing on social media.
I see the same people reposting what is essentially click bait on a daily basis, and it’s just going to end in tears.
If it starts “like and share if you think etc etc...” then please take time to fact check it first. Use www.snopes.com, or search a few trusted news sites such as the BBC, Reuters or Sky News.
