Scammers peddling bogus tax breaks find traction on Facebook

This comes from the AP, and I bet you’ve seen these ADs before.

The scam ads used photos of nearly every U.S. governor — and sometimes President Donald Trump — to claim that with new, lucrative tax incentives, people might actually make money by installing solar technology on their homes. Facebook users only needed to enter their addresses, email, utility information and phone number to find out more.

Those incentives don’t exist.


Facebook apparently didn’t take action until notified by state-government officials who noticed the ads.
