North Bay police are investigating an incident of child luring in the city, prompting a warning to youth to be cautious when using social media.

In a news release yesterday, police said they've received reports that young women are being contacted by a man claiming to represent a modelling agency. The man offers the girls an all-expenses paid trip to southern Ontario, and a big pay cheque for doing so. 

The North Bay Police Service recommends that if you use Facebook, don't accept friendship requests from unknown users.

Anyone with information are being asked to contact police.
