Fake Alden McLaughlin Facebook page flagged

More cyber-mischief involving the Premier’s office for the second time in a week.
On Sunday we broke the story about a bogus work permit and visa story, which created a storm on social media forums and prompted the Premier’s Office to issue a statement refuting it.
We have been told a police investigation is underway into a fake Facebook profile set-up in Premier Alden McLaughlin’s name.
The profile uses the Premier’s official photo and information and replicates Mr McLaughlin’s official Facebook page.
The fake profile updates by sharing posts from the Premier’s official page.
Now the fake profile has been reaching out to people on Premier McLaughlin’s official page sending messages to engage conversation then prompting the user to discuss funding.
We reached out to the Premier’s Office for comment on the fake profile, but no response has been made.
The fake profile has now been removed.
