How To Identify And Get Rid Of Scammers On Facebook

Facebook Scams 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. Below is how to get rid of scam and protect yourself. You can find the top common scam message here.

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.

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.

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….”

  1. I just got this from diana garbaa

    My Dearest,

    How are you today, hope you are fine, you have given me hope by returning my message and i will also like to meet you in person as we continue to know more about ourselves and i guess you are the type of man i am looking forward to spend the rest of my life with, i am not going to give my love to any other man if only you will satisfy me, so needless of looking for another man because you are the first man that i have contacted and i am trusting that you will not betray my confidence in you.

    My dear, to tell you more about my self, i am Miss Diana Ahmed Abdullahi, i am a 20 years old girl from Somalia but presently residing here in Senegal, the only daughter of Late Dr. Ahmed Abdullahi Wayel, the former education minister of Somalia who died in a suicide bomb attack in Shamo Hotel in Mogadishu on the 3rd December, 2009 in which many innocent souls were killed or injured. Unfortunately, my father was among the dead and life has not been the same again for me ranging from starvation due to the severe famine in my country to insecurity of my life because of war and constant terrorist attacks which forced me to escape and take asylum in the United Nations Refugee Camp in Dakar-Senegal in order to save my life and reclaim my inherited fund which my late father left for me in a Senegal Bank so that i can use the fund to relocate to a peaceful country and reestablish my shattered life.

    My late father left huge amount of fund in his bank account in Senegal and please i have not told anyone except you and our Reverend priest about the existence of this fund and i will like you to please keep it secret and confidential to other people because since it is (MONEY) all eyes will be on it and my security also will continue to be at risk as some people may want to eliminate me and claim my inheritance when they get to know about my worth and this is why i am pleading with you to keep the transaction in utmost confidential and only between the us.

    Remember i trust you and that is why i am giving you all this information’s. I want to give my love to you and you alone as i wrote earlier, you are the first man in my life. Moreover, i will like to hear your voice please, you can just call me with this telephone number( +221-763-442-859 ) It is our Reverend priest’s telephone. His name is Reverend Paul Boris and his e-mail address is (revpaulboris852@yahoo.com). If you call him please tell him that you want to speak with Miss Diana Ahmed Abdullahi in the female hostel of the refugee camp and he will send for me to answer your call because i have just told him about you and the man of God gave his blessings and support to us.

    I have already informed the Senegal bank about my plans to reclaim my inherited fund and the manager of the bank advised me to look for a foreign partner who will stand on my behalf in the transfer of the fund due to my present refugee status which forbids me to partake in any kind of monetary transaction be it locally or internationally.

    You will have 15% of the total fund for helping me and the remaining amount will be my investment capital which will be managed by you in any business of your choice while i go back to university to complete my studies as i was only in my 2nd year in the university when the crisis started in my country. In this regards i will give you my father`s bank contact details immediately with some information’s upon your acceptance to help me in reclaiming the fund. My late father has Six Million, Seven Hundred Thousand USD ($6.700,000.00) deposit which i am the next of kin. So, all i need from you is your confirmation of willingness to represent me in the transfer and your full assurance not to betray me after my inherited fund has been transferred to your own account in your country.

    My dear, i am glad that God has brought you to see me out from this terrible situation that i am presently into and i promise to be kind and will equally need you in every area of my life including investing this fund since i do not yet have any experience in investment management and that is why i want to return to the university and complete my education as soon as the transfer is completed.

    Yours sincerely,

    Diana Ahmed

    Ask him to send you a certified bank draft of ($250,000 ) Two hundred and fifth thousand Us dollar,which I prepared and kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. so feel free and get in touched with Rev Martins Lucas and instruct him where to send you the draft cheque.

    Please do let me know immediately when you receive it so that we can share our joy and happiness after all the sufferings at that time.In the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which i and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to Rev Martin Lucas on your behalf to receive that money. Therefore feel free to get in touch with him and he will send the cheque to you without delay.Take care and bye for now.
