Facebook Stocks Sale

How the scam works:

Scammers manage to convince people that Facebook stocks are too good to pass up. Smooth talking and aggressive in style, crooks are reported to persuade victims to pay thousands of dollars for an nonexistent investment.

The scammers approach their victims either by email or Facebook messages and send them to fake websites selling 'Facebook stocks'. The victims are usually between 23-55 years old.

How to avoid:

Be extremely careful with these kind of emails. Unsolicited investment advice from people you don't know are most often scams. If you want to invest in Facebook, do your diligence and buy the shares only through legitimate sources.
