Police urging people not to donate to a fundraising website set up in the name of a family of a young woman who died last week.
Chloe Miazek, 20, was found dead in a flat in Aberdeen on Friday.
Following her death, a fundraising page – carried on thewebsite – was set up.
However, it has been confirmed the page was not been set up by Chloe’s family and Police Scotland is urging people not to donate to it.
Detective Inspector Gary Winter, from Police Scotland’s Major Investigations Team, said: “This fundraising page is not connected to relations of Chloe Miazek and has caused unnecessary further distress to a family trying to come to terms with her death.
“We have contacted the website to make them aware of our concerns.
“In the meantime I would ask people not to donate to this fundraising page and to share this message to prevent others from donating to it.”
Police Scotland was alerted to concerns for a woman within a property at a block of flats in the Rosemount Viaduct area of Aberdeen at around 7.40am on Friday, November 3.
A 32-year-old man has been charged in connection with 20-year-old Chloe’s death and is anticipated to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court tomorrow.
