My grandma posted this message about Facebook Scams as someone was trying to take advantage of her:
Beware of scams. I was on chat with who I thought was my niece until she said she was stuck in London & needed money, She comes from big family so called one of her sisters & she said that she knew where she was it wasn’t in London they wanted $1450 then when I confronted them they told me another story just be careful.
These scammers are getting bolder and bolder. They apparently have hacked into a family member’s account and then started Facebook chatting with this Facebook user’s friends. HOW incredibly bold!
Just another reminder to take the time and go through your apps that have access to your account and get those cleared out. Also, be sure to change your password to something that is difficult for anyone else to figure out.
