Facebook Identity Theft
While surfing on Facebook, a friend of yours messages you and after exchanging pleasantries, about health, family, work, etc, they bring up a topic about new and easy ways of making money. The offers seem real and tempting where you learn that you might get even up to $50,000.00, in the first attempt. You are eager to learn and you keep chatting with them until they are able to persuade you to click a link that will scam you out of your earnings!
Surprising, you might know that the person you have been chatting with is not your friend but a scammer who has copied your friend's Facebook page to look real. They have also been able to copy the list of friends to try and get money out of all of you.

ADVICE FROM Anonymous
Always protect your Facebook account details, list of friends and who can view your news posts. This does not prevent you from enjoying the features on Facebook in any way. However, it makes it possible for you to feel more secure and for your friends to avoid worrying that when you talk to them, it might be a scammer, with an account like your, trying to cheat them of their money. When you suspect that your friends account has been impersonated, letting them know and reporting the matter to Facebook administrators will save a lot.
