    Wow FB cloning scam

    I received this from a FB friend advising us of this huge problem. Google this and you find out it is happening a lot she says. So these are her words to me...............

    Heads-up!! Almost every account is being cloned. Your picture and your name are used to create a new face book account (they don't need your password to do this this). They want to be your friends to add them to their Facebook account. Your friends will think that it's you and accept your request. From that point on they can write what they want under your name. I have NO plans to open a new account. Please DO NOT accept a 2nd friend request from "me". please forward to all your contacts. I got this from a friend who had her email account cloned. I have also received 2 requests from friends that I was already friends with but were fake.

    The forwarding thing is the actual scam. Just don't forward it. Nobody is actually cloning accounts en masse.

    Grooming business pages cloned too. This does happen. I verify my business page once a week for cloning too. They copy your page and put their contact in. See here https://www.facebook.com/business/he...54253495882793

    Thanks admin. But did you know if they have been asking you to add your mobile phone to your account they have been selling your contact mobile phone number. Saw it on tv the other night. Greedy poopers.
