Body:
The FBI has launched a new campaign warning people against making fake threats. 

The campaign is called #ThinkBeforeYouPost and it stresses that hoax threats are not a joke.
A new billboard along the Belt Highway in St. Joseph is part of that campaign.
The FBI says it has seen an increase in threats made to schools following the deadly school shootings in Santa Fe, Texas and Parkland, Florida.
A fake threat made to a school or another public place could carry a five year prison sentence if convicted. Three billboards are also up in Kansas City.
