During the past couple of years, I have received 3 chats through Messenger from fake profiles of Facebook Friends. I never took the bait, because each chat was suspicious!
3 reasons to be suspicious:
- Each FBF had never chatted with me before. So, it was strange to get a Messenger notification.
- Each conversation was extremely vague and general.
- Each chat concluded with a money scheme.
I suspect many folks are falling for the scam. This meme came through my Newsfeed.
That was a great meme. Yesterday, I received a Chat Notification via Messenger. It was so strange. I know the person, but the chat was very weird.
I asked the Fake Profile a simple question. Here is a screenshot…
The Fake Profile could not answer my question and abruptly left the conversation!
I advise everyone to not fall for the bait and be prepared to challenge the scammer.
