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".

Sharing this message with ten (or any other number) of your friends does nothing but spamming them with another hoax.


Facebook Billing Hoax: How To Avoid

Facebook always made public the fact that will always be free. Ignore the message and just reply to your friend letting them know that they fell victim to this hoax. The message could also come from a person you don't know (probably a fake profile), so that's another reason to ignore it.

Another thing you need to learn in order to avoid typical social media scams is how to easily recognize if the person contacting you has a bogus account or not.
