How To Identify And Get Rid Of Scammers On Facebook

Scamming is a common activity which not only work through Facebook which is the Giant Social Networking Site but too in emails, websites, blogs and many others ways. What happens is that the Scammer will fake his or her identity, gets the right contact details of the target person and will try their best and possible way to establish a connection and within a few days, its when one will get to know that he or she was scammed after either losing big amounts of money or being a subject of identity theft and which I am sure you know what follows.

For the past weeks, it looks like I was targeted but since I knew something already with regard on how scammers operate, I was have been lucky and still that I haven’t fallen for them just like what their target might have been. In this post, I will share with you what exactly happened to me so that you can be able to use the same experience yourself when it comes to detecting a possible scammer in his or her attempts to do do his work, and below are some of the Scam messages which scammers use to get started on some one.

Message Eight

Hello My dear.
How are you doing today and how is everything over there together with your health? i hope that you are in good condition of health, i want to use this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Miss Sonia . i saw you profile today and i become interesting on you, so i will like you to contact me direct with my contact email address (soniaevra15@yahoo.c­om) so that i will show you my photo and also tell you everything about myself and i will also like to know more about you. thanks for your understand and i will be hoping to hear from you soon.
Yours Sonia.

When you take a look at all the message above, you can see that they are almost identical but from different users. When I tried to respond as a test trial on one of them, below is what they responded to me.

Thank you for responding and am happy that you are accepting me as your friend. In my last email, I told you that Facebook is not safe and can you please email me or send me you email address as a reply? Blessed.

Now you can see how she was not interested as a social friend by rather, one who wanted my email address so that she could get started with all the fake info about her. What I did next was to create a one use free email address using a custom domain name – the .tk version and sent her the email. Check how she responded.
So great.

Now that I have your email address, we can talk. But one question is that I don’t trust this email address since they are not permanent. But its okay. Here is my story..I am an orphan living in a camp… My father was a rich man who died in a plane crush.. He left $7,000,000 in one US bank account…. I want to help me act as a beneficiary since my late father left no will….

And many more others words which are the same similar messages sent by Scammers from anywhere they base.

My Next MoveWent to tk site and deleted the entire site and all of its emails. The next day, the profile on Facebook is no where..

If you are one of those who have been receiving such messages, just know that you are on their list and that you are being scammed.

How To Protect Yourself From Scammers On Facebook

1. Only accept messages from those people who are your friends already.

2. Don’t use your real email address on Facebook and if you use it, then change the privacy to hidden.

3. Accept friend requests from only those whom you know other than strangers.

4. Never provide your phone number to any new friend and those whom you don’t trust.

5. Never share your exact information for example your contact addresses to strangers.

6. Don’t accept any offers and private email talk requests apart from Facebook only.

7. Report any suspicious users on Facebook.

8. Ignore their demands and simply mark their messages as Spam.

And many others secured ways.

    Just got this message. “contact me on stellabahi24@hotmail.com my name is miss Stella.” I guess the word is getting out so they are trying to bait people with less information upfront.
