You can quickly alert them to anything you see as a scam or a fake account. This allows them to communicate with the platforms involved to deal with the problem.

When reporting something you have seen, please add in the social channel in the email subject line. For example: "Telegram - reporting someone spamming" or "Fake website looks like a scam" or "Reddit - someone is posting scam links". So that they can deal with the issue efficiently.
