    Someone hacked an Egg Buddies friend's account (Charlene Laukka) and sent me this message: "Have you heard about the Government and the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg who help hearing ,deafs, disable, retired and some other facebook users? The promotion was made to some facebook user in other to benefit from them its a randomly picked of profile on facebook $150,000.00. UPS delivered the money to my door step. I saw your name on the list with the shipping company agent. do u know how to get intouch wit them to get yours from them bcos I saw ur name on the list when the shipping agent bring the money to me. u will have to contact them first so they can locate ur destination to bring u the money as they did. they cant get intouch wit u if u didnt contact them your self."

    I then asked how to get in touch with them. The response....

    "https://www.facebook.com /diane.mary.501
    Diane Mary

    Did u message her now?

    Diane Mary
    That is the way u going to contact them , and let her know I told u about it that u ready to claim urs"

    This is an obvious scam, so do not get taken in by it. Let your friends know when your account has been hacked. So, of course, I unfriended the scammer and life goes on.

    I was contacted several day's ago by a Nesterr Debra Ethridge who said the works at the FB head office. She said I was one of 6 lucky winners of 500,000 In order to claim my winnings,I had to wire a courier company $300 for the very special delivery.

    I've never heard of this scam before so I wired the money and sent a picture of the receipt to her. A day later she contacts me again and tells me that the Department of Homeland Security has seized my winnings and I will have to pay $2000 and contact Mr Jeh Johnson to have them released to me. I had already applied for a loan from an online company because I was unable to pay for my mortgage after sending them the 300.O0.

    The bank manager froze my account because he found out the loan company obtained the money illegally. Now I'm receiving death threats from them. Meanwhile this Facebook lady miraculously dropped the claim fees to $ 1000. I am a disabled grandmother on Social Security. They all have been reported.

    Here is the email I just received stating that I am a winner. This is the third time this has happened after the second time Facebook locked my account and therefore I no longer have a Facebook account that is usable. I refused to give my legal Id to Facebook to prove who I am considering you do not need to send them Id to open an account. I asked Facebook to close my account and they will not because they want my Id. How do I close this account to stop this nonsense without sending my legal Id.

      I was contacted by supposedly one of my friends through FB message - saying she had won money from a FB lottery and she wanted to share the info with me knowing I was also a widow and having a hard time. All I had to do was pay $1000 for fees and I would receive $100,000.00.

      I should have know better, but I trusted her. After I sent the money I started getting worried that I had messed up and messaged her back and got a phone number to contact to ask questions and then they e-mailed a certificate showing I had won and it would be delivered the next day - then I get this text from 612-276-2656 telling me the truck had broke down and that the money would now have to come out of Canada and it would take another 2 days - and then I get a text saying that the IRS in Canada had stopped her and she needed another $1000, and I said I have no more money.

      So I get another message saying that if I will just send $150 for her gas she will take care of the taxes. Like someone really stupid I sent that. Then I was given a UPS tracking number that was suppose to let me tract the shipment. That didn't even make sense so I tracked it and it was going to San Antonio, TX. But they continue to message me saying all kinds of things that I am still getting money.

      Was suppose to be delivered this morning. And this morning I get no messages so I start messaging this person and finally I get a message back saying that the person "RENEE TUCK" HAS BEEN IN A BAD ACCIDENT AND IS IN A COMA. I THEN WENT BACK AND FORTH TELLING THE PERSON THAT IS SENDING ME THE MESSAGES WHO SAYS HE IS A DOCTOR. HE EVEN SENT ME PICTURES OF A PERSON THAT IS ON LIFE SUPPORT! THIS IS A TOTAL SCAM.

He told me that back in 2006 the government made available a wide variety of programs.in 2010 Publishers Clearing House has also allocated billions of dollars in various Facebook funding programs. He said it is a Financial Help company for Publishers Clearing House for selected Facebook users. And, it is generating money from the government as part of the Facebook Company help program.

    He said all I need to do is answer these questions

      It's the same identical first part. I was messaged from my friend stating she got $200,000,00 a few weeks ago, and said I was a winner too and how to Facebook friends, then message the man. So I did today, but said I request more time because my funds are low. I wonder if they have stolen my friends Facebook name now. I need to get in touch with her. Good Luck to everyone.

      Once the scammers receive your personal information, they will use the information or sell it to other scammers. Scammers use personal information to contact and convince their potential victims in sending money, claiming the money is for taxes, shipping cost, legal or other fees. Once the victims have sent the money(usually via Western Union or MoneyGram) thinking they will receive their prizes, the scammers will disappear, or may continue to trick the victims into sending more.

      People have asked me how scammers and spammers were able to get a hold of their information; not remembering that they were the one who sent the information to the same scammers.

If you enter her name on search,she is the 2nd and 3rd profile.

    I was also contacted by a representative that said they World for the Department of Health & Human Services. By the name of Fredrick Johnny which was odd to begin with because this person has two first names. However, he contacted me basically thru my Aunt which I was already friends with, so I just thought that she reactivated her page but first of all I received a message from her stating that I was amongst the winners who were selected to receive 300,000 in cash as long as it was expressed to the agent Fredrick Johnny that was handling my case.

    So in that message it also stated for me to contact him thru text which isn't professional to be handling such a large amount of money. But by the message being sent thru my Aunt I did think it was real because she's a Christian woman. So I did contact the representative but when I would ask personal information like how would I contact his company for further information regarding this winning he never would respond. So I looked the area code up the call came from Texas then it changed and he started calling from another number which was MissourI & Wisconsin.

    Then when I went back thru my messages they were deleted of all his messages that had been sent thru my Aunt. So that was a BIG CLUE as well. So then I contacted the Department of Health & Human Services & WCAB which he also said he worked for so I could get confirmation if this was an actually person.

    But just to finish my story, no one was verified, not a case nor file. So just be aware of these people trying to get someone to send them money because they told me I had to Money gram 1,000 for processing files then my $300,000 would be delivered within 9hrs at my doorstep by a UPS carrier. This is so BOGUS.

        Facebook and other large online companies are working to stop fraudulent activities on the internet, but they won't be to stop all fraudulent activities. They spend billions cracking down on illegal activities on the internet every year. But, as they take down fraudulent webpages, posts, computer servers and other internet equipment, scammers or cyber-criminals continue to create more fraudulent websites and set up computer servers in countries where it is hard or impossible to prosecute them. That is why it is important to educate people about scams, so they may help themselves.

      We are not able to stop scammers on Facebook, it is Facebook responsibility to do so. What we can do is educate the general public, so they do not fall victims to the scammers.

      Please use Facebook's 'Report Spam or Abuse' tool to report it to them. They will terminate the account of the user. But, as one account is removed, hundreds of others will be created, so it is virtually impossible for Facebook to stop all those scammers. So, educating you about scams and other online threats, is the most effective way of preventing you and others from falling victims to scammers.

    I spoke to him by messenger on FB and he was really "good." I ended up losing some money for "supposed" legal fees to get money.

    They acting like the FBI and pretending to be ligit, but that's a scam too . I was talking to what is supposed to be a girl named Cortez Marlrnr.

    Just received the same thing from a Hannah Beaugez who says that I have won $500,000 out of their lottery.


    It already seemed suspicious when she called Zuckereburg Mr. Mark and kept misspelling words. This was the email she said to send my info to ( facebookonlineclaim_price @live.com )

    You can see how "prize" is misspelled and @ live is at the end.

    Here is the full message:

    "I am delighted to inform you that your name was luckily selected among the 5 lucky winners who won the sum of $500,000
    United State Dollars on the Facebook online promo that was conducted by the Facebook officials in order to SAY A BIG THANK YOU to all our users for making the Facebook social networking their ways of sending and receiving messages from their friends and family all over the world...

    Furthermore, You're advise to contact the Facebook Head Office via to complete your winning certificate and for further information regarding the disbursement of your lottery win.

    OK what is the deal here. I am not in contact with a Massie Daniel who claims to be a Facebook Brass officer in charge of Raffle promotions on Facebok. She has a Facebook page. I have sent them 1600.00 dollars already because they have pages on facebook. tried and tried to get this verified... I could not even find this page until a friend set it up for me. Is Facebook responsible for this?

    There emails are Mark Zuckerberg, FacebookManager748@gmail.com. and Massie Daniel.

    Originally I was contacted by a Mary Steed. I thought it was a scam and unfriended her. Then I was contacted by Mark Zuckerberg and by a Michael Daniel.

    I felt like a fool for sending them 850.00. Then I was contacted by a Massie Daniel who said they were in a lot of trouble in the nearby island of Anguilla by Interpol.

    I was fooled because this was all done under the name of Facebook complete with a Facebook page and verification from Facebook in the form of this Massie Daniel.

    What am I to do? I am now in contact with her at this moment on my messages and the contact is active.

    Can you do anything at all to help? This is undermining Facebook. If I had just gotten a response from my messages trying to verify this 4 days ago, this would not have happened to me.

    I got a FB message from a trusted friend. They had her email and then gave a link to the lottery agent. I almost fell for it, until the asked me for money. Then I posted on FB wall for my friends to beware of this tag-team approach. I also contact my friend to let her know her FB profile was hacked and someone was posing as them. Bunch of crooks that need to get a real job!

    My fb friend has messaged me saying he won and that he saw my name on the list. That I should text this number. 1-305-918-1941 my name and address to a Mr. Bradshaw. So I texted the number asking if it's a scam. He of course said no and directed me to a website to claim my prize.

    They want emails and passwords. I'm not giving that stuff out. So I texted again asking for a personal call back he said there was no time to talk. My point is now they're using your friends to get to you.

    Beware. Anyone who really wins something shouldn't have to compromise their security to receive it. Thanks M. Fox.

      It is a scam. Never send your hard earned money to anyone who asks you to send money in order to receive your lottery prize, gift or award.

      Once you are asked to send money upfront, especially via MoneyGram, Western Union or Prepaid Debit cards, it is always a scam. Ask yourself this question: why can't they take the upfront amount from your winnings or prize money? See the irony now.

      I got a message from a trusted family friend, who said she won $200,000.00 USD via a selection from 15 million Facebook emails. UPS delivered the cash to her door and she paid nothing to receive it.

      She saw my name on the courier's list and told me to IM an agentedwardcollins@yahoo.com. He gave me the reference #, batch#, ticket#, etc. and had me fill out a form with the public information listed on my Facebook page.

      I am supposed to receive $200,000.00 cash, which is the same amount my friend said she received.

      But Edward Collins is no longer listed to use Messenger to contact him.

        It seems that your Facebook friend's account has been hijacked or compromised, and is being used by the hijackers (scammers) to trick you into sending your information or money.

    I have a friend on Chat that on the 9th Oct. he told me that he won and that my name was on the list and I should contact them.

    I have paid a fee of $965.00 for my fee and now they are asking for taxes, I told them I have 1100.00 had to pay to MoneyGram for a John Harlan in Round Rock, Texas. I told FB that they would have to either take the taxes out of my winnings as I can't pay anymore. Have no money, He said for me to give them my bank account info. I did this because my friend on chat said to do it and he said he sent them $2900.00 on my behalf toward the taxes and they failed to confirm the reference I sent for the 1100. Dollars or the 2900.00.

    The FB Claim Services agent said they will send $40,000.to my checking and I should turn around and send it right back to them for the remainder of the taxes. I told him I do not have the money for the Transfer fees to send it back via MoneyGram he said they will send the fee as well for me to return the $40,000.to them. My taxes on $150,000. should only be about 26,000. and they will deliver to me 124,000 within 24 to 48 hours. My friend who is on Chat said work with them they are legit. Being suspicious I emailed my friend from the old email address and have received no answer.

    I got on Chat and told him to respond to my email and he said he did not use that old email any more. Then I ask him had he talked to Alice (another mutual friend) about Carolyn a friend that passed away that he used to be close to. His response was "am not always on here and I think you know that". We don't communicate enough for me to know this. Something is not right. I feel I need to go change my bank account today which will cause a lot of problems. I have a part time job and received SS paycheck via my bank account. Can they withdraw MONEY from
    my bank account? Worried!!!!!!

      I am sorry to hear that you have been scammed, especially in these hard times. There is no Facebook, Hotmail, Gmail or Google lottery, and never send money via Western Union, MoneyGram to someone who claims that you need to pay taxes or some form of processing fee.

      Once you are asked to send money in order to receive your winnings, without a doubt it is a scam.

      Contact your bank to verify if they(scammers) can withdraw money from your account with the banking information that you have sent.

    Next came request for personal info and I refused saying I do not put any info on internet - then after getting off - I came to this site to get info and decided to see what they would do next. I planned to notify any fraud branch I could find and FBI if needed along with whatever would go through to FB with all its layers of ways to ignore our questions, problems, make changes we don't want or ask for including messenger.

    My kids need help but not scams - they have been out of their beloved home for 10 months now and are trying to be the best they can be, but not a lot of help - it is a very small town where teachers pump gas to help pay bills and only 1900 population. Thanks.

    I received a notification from a Stacy Smith (how quaint) after trying to find help for my daughter and granddaughters who's home burned down in Dec 2013 and they are and were having to live in 3 different places.

    The exterior in front not too bad, but the whole interior is destroyed-no appliances or anything use saved 9 mos later it is still not usable and volunteers to help disappeared when winter came. She has done all she can but fire dept demands professional electrician and if she could afford it she has to tear down all the work she did and the kids 11

    I was almost scammed by a Lotto win on Facebook.

    Started by a friend request by Dick G Fox (whom is a friend )I accept his request. Then a couple of mins later he private messages me.

    That he saw my name on a winners list. That he is was a winner too. For $ 200,000.

    He gave me the link to talk to the person handling the lotto winning.

    Dick stayed on messaging me while I talked to this Mathew Stewart Smub on private message.

    This conversation when on for a while. Gave more info than I should. Name,address,cell# and email info. They needed money for delivery fees and wanted me to go to CVS #4996 at W165 N5596 Creekwood Crossing MF ect...

    I told them I should never have to seed money to win money. They tried to tell me this was real. I was confused by haveing Dick Fox also telling me this was real.

    I still think it is a scam but not sure. I do question if they stole Dick fb and used him falsely.

    That would be nasty. Think this is a nasty scam. Did not lose money on this. Beware!

      It is a scam. It seems as if your friend's account has been compromised or someone is using a fake copy of your friend's account. Send your friend an email and tell he/she to change his/her password.

    I have been scammed. The person emailing me was Yako. He told me I was a winner of 65000.00 dollars. He told me to send 400 dollars through western union to Janet York in Beechgrove Tennessee 37018. He have me a reference number and a batch number.

    After I sent the 400 dollars he said the IRS needed 900 dollars in order for the UPS people would deliver my winnings.

      You were scammed. Never send money to receive lottery prizes. Once someone asks you to do so, that person is attempting to scam you.

      Remember, there is no Hotmail, Outlook, Facebook, Google, Twitter lotteries.

      Also, never send money to anyone via Western Union, MoneyGram or other money transfer services, to someone that you do not know.

    Yes I do have something to say. A few day ago a I thought a Facebook friend stated that she had WON. I thought it was from the game we were playing then she stated that he seen my name on the list as well from Facebook that I to had won a prize, that I had to contact FB.

    I could not find the info so I wrote a letter to Mr Zuckaberg CEO and the CFO.

    Any ways, then a Mr James oger Robinson sent me a message on fb that I needed to fill out some paper work, but to hold while he checked to see how much I won. He said that a check amount of $140,000 FB could send to me, but to claim it I needed to send $1200 for paper work.

    I then told Mr Robinson that I did not have that kind of cash just laying around that and if this is TRUE, I am as poor as a Church mouse and I only had $368 in my account. He then wanted me to borrow it. Like no way I told him that I understood about local state tax, but that I should not be paying for S/H and paper work to claim it.

    He went on and on about my winnings and I just plainly told him it was a scam and deleted him as he requested to be fb's.

    Please do note that following and check into it because I will file a complant with FB and with my state and I might even check with my lawyer.
