    Hi, I was privately messaged via chat on my number, unfortunately I was so excited that I gave all my personal details and was given a number flp/fb/081/010/2015 and right at the end was told I would have to pay $800 for courier insurance etc.

    I am very dubious as I wasnt emailed, jus messaged via chat. The guy's name is Williams Renell Ray.

    I was first told about this by a friend that isnt close to me on messenger, Linda Hall. She claimed she saw my name as a winner when she claimed her prize - I havent sent money yet because I'm very dubious.

    I would be very thankful if this was checkd out.

      It is a scam. Do not send your money! Once you are asked to send money in order to receive a lottery prize, it is a scam. This is how the scammers make their money.

    Why do Facebook allow these scammers to advertise as part of their organisation.

    They blatantly place things on Facebook, with the facebook icon, saying they represent the head of facebook with a FB icon. Telling you to beware of scammers, often in an ungrammatical text. If I were Facebook team, I would delete each one

      If it was possible, Facebook would have removed all illegal content from their website. Monitoring such large website for fraudulent activities takes time.

      So, it is important that people do their research before taking part in any activity, especially the ones that seem too true to believe.

    This is a scam alert coming from someone named Debbie Mudge on Facebook. She gets a hold of you thru one of your friends that has their profile hacked. I reported her to fb.

    This is the message the scammer will send to you:

    "You are a WIN NEW of the randomly facebook money grant and You are
    therefore been approved
    for a lump sum pay out of $120,000.00 in cash credited to file REF NO.

        I had the same problem. You pay a package fee he said, pay at the Post Office shop in NZ. LIKE 1,000 would give you 100,000, once paid Fed X courier will deliver.

        I 'aint done any payment; then he said we always make people happy.

        My friend I think he was hoping i'd pay the money and loose out of it, he reckons he got his.

          It seems as if your friend's Facebook account was compromised and is being used by scammers to trick you.

          If a friend contacts you on Facebook, about some lottery and asks you to send money, it is a scam.

          If you don't believe me, contact the friend via telephone.

    I just received a friend request from a friend and then she said she won the lottery and saw my name on it.

    She attached the name of a lawyer to contact to win the prize! He asked for name address and email.

    I stopped when he asked for Facebook acct.

    I emailed het and asked her to call me and she said she would call when she bought her new iPhone with the prize money!

    I had a hard time deleting her acct! It is a hoax!

    I myself also received a message through a "Facebook Chat" from a person that I thought it was my friend but it was NOT! So, apparently they hacked my friend's Facebook. I contacted my friend immediately and told my friend that her fb was hacked. I immediately change my Facebook password as well as my regular Email address just in case.
    Please beware of this person name ROBERT SCOTT JAMES with his Fraudulent Facebook Freedom Lottery Award Scam!!!!!!!!

    I received a message from a friend with this….it was not my friend who sent it so apparently they hacked his Facebook. Beware…..I figured it out when I told my friend to call me immediately and the response was , I have to go, I'll call you later! That is when I figured it out. Plus the written message had numerous English errors…..probably Nigerian fraud again!

    If you gave them any passwords, you need to change them. For your personal information there is nothing much that you can do. These scammers may sell your information to spammers or other scammers, who may send you bulk emails and attempt to scam you.

    You also run the risk of your identity being stolen.
