Although this is not a financial scam, the Facebook Charging Fees hoax comes as an inbox Messenger text from a friend, who was naive enough to believe its content.
The message reads: “From Saturday morning Facebook will become chargeable. If you have at least 10 contacts send them this message. In this way we will see that you are an avid user and your logo will become blue and will remain free. As discussed in the paper today. Facebook will cost $0.01 per message. Send this message to 10 people. When you do the light will turn blue otherwise Facebook will activate billing”.
