The Cybercrime Police has detected over 1,500 fake social networks accounts, all of them encouraging the looting of stores and portraying the protests over gas price hike as violent.

The accounts have been active since January 1, 2017 and encourage the looting of Walmart, Sam's Club, Soriana, Chedraui stores, and also attempt to discredit the protests occurring across Mexico.

All of the accounts, mainly Twitter accounts, seem like were created the same day using a template.
