Facebook Scams

Friend requests from weird accounts, marketplace listings that seem too good to be true, profiles of people that already have profiles…these are just a few examples of Facebook scams. Phishing and other acts of fraud are rife on the world’s largest social network. 

There are a number of widespread scams on that platform, such as the many Facebook friend request scams, many of which are phishing accounts just trying to get your information.

Facebook marketplace scams are also popular, as classified ads have always attracted fraud and other illicit practices.
