Beware of Facebook Posts Asking Users to Type "Amen" to Help or Support Children, Adults or Animals

Beware of Facebook Posts Asking Users to Type "Amen"  to Help or Support Children, Adults or Animals

Beware of deceitful Facebook users who are posting pictures of sick, starving, dead and injured children, adults or animals on Facebook, to trick other Facebook users into commenting on them by typing "Amen," in order to make them popular. This type of activity is another Like-Farming scam, and the photos or videos in them are being used without the owners' consent. The heartless and deceitful people who are tricking Facebook users into typing "Amen" are only taking advantage of caring Facebook users, who think they are helping out, by playing with their consciences. The scam may also ask Facebook users to compliment a child, an adult or an animal, or type "Amen" to be grateful for something.

Please continue reading below.

Scammers use the posts to gather up potential victims. Once they have enough Facebook users, they will start sending them spam (unsolicited messages) with links that will take potential victims to phishing websites that will steal their information, or malicious links that will take them to dangerous websites that will infect their computers with Spyware or Trojan horse. The scammers may also send fraudulent messages claiming that their potential victims are so-called lottery winners and they need to send money in order to claim their prizes.

The messages below are just some of the few examples used by deceitful Facebook users to trick other Facebook users into commenting on their fake posts:

  • “don’t scroll without typing amen.”
  • “if you woke up this morning and your thankful every day while being bless scroll down and type amen”
  • “how many likes can she get?”
  • “this baby still cute, scroll if your heartless”
  • “ignore if your heartless”
  • “keep scrolling if your heartless”
  • "Ignore If You Have No Heart"
  • "PLEASE DONT IGNORE"
  • "Don't scroll without saying R.I.P"
  • "This is so sad type AMEN and lets see how many amen's and likes he can get"
  • "Don't scroll without showing respect"
  • "Please don't scroll down without saying "Amen"
  • "Don't Press Watch Without Typing Amen"
  • "1 like = 1000 prayers Don't scroll without typing amen"
  • "Would You Save Your Mother? Type Yes Ignore NO"
  • "Do you trust in prayers? If yes so please pray for this baby take a minute and type "Amen" your one amen is one pray if you don't love children so you can skip this"

Also, if you have received a message stating Facebook will donate money to a child if you like, share or comment on some content, please do not follow the instructions in the message, instead, report it to Facebook. And, if you have already commented on Facebook posts with sick, starving and injured children, adults or animals that you are not able to determine the legitimacy of, please click here for instructions on how to remove those posts from your Facebook Wall and Timeline.

      You may be able to get back into your Facebook account by using an alternate email or mobile phone number listed on your account. You may also be able to get help from friends.

      Keep in mind that you'll only see these options if you set them up. To see if you have these options:

      Go to the Facebook login page and tap Forgot password?

      Fill out the form to identify your account.

      Select a contact method listed on your account to have a password reset link sent to you. If you don't have access to any of these, tap No longer have access to these?

      If you've previously set up these options, follow the instructions provided or get help from friends.

      If the scammers are still active, they will send you posts or messages with links to phishing or malicious websites. Or, they may message you in an attempt to trick you into believing you have won some so-called lottery or promotion and ask you to send money in order to receive your so-called prize. They also attempt other forms of scams.

    My brother responded to a few of these posts by typing Amen. They were mainly of children with horrific illnesses or injuries. I noticed some unusual posts under my brothers name & they were happening more & more. I reported to Facebook that I thought he had been hacked. They were brilliant and sorted his Facebook account out for him. He no longer types amen on any posts.

    I don't like all of the stuff you will be dammed if you do not like or type Amen. I am a practicing Christian but this is not Christian or kind.

    Facebook is a wonderful media if it is use in the correct format and keeps people in communition all over the world; it is very sad to see it being abused.

    I have reported this so many times it's not even funny. FB keeps sending me "it doesn't go against community standards"!!! I want someone to do something!! People have stolen a picture of my infant son taken at a very challenging time in our lives. I never posted the picture to Facebook. My account is also private. I only posted this picture to my personal blog of which I allowed to stay public to help other people with children diagnosed with spina bifida. Please help me get my sons picture off Facebook. I'm sure there are lots of post out there now but I know the following people have it on their page:

    Adrien Byrd
    Jennifer Vergara
    and Elim Caveres

    If you look at the uploads on these accounts you will see nothing but tons of these kinds of posts. I would greatly appreciate someon doing something. If there is a way to look up his pic everywhere that would be awesome. Please help me!

    Lately I have been receiving text messages purportedly from Facebook.

    Example:
    Do you know ( "name" )?
    Send them a friend request. Then, on
    the second box, it says:
    Tap to load preview.
    fb.com

    The problem is the persons they name are already existing FB friends of mine! So I've been suspicious and did not respond as it's been suggested! Am I doing the right thing? Please reply. Thanks!

    I was alerted to the activity of Ram Niwas by my sister. I reported this guy who was doing this abhorrent activity - Facebook says he is not contravening Facebook's community standards and suggested I blocked him from my account. This is not good enough Facebook - why do they want vunerable people to be subjected to this kind of activity. By doing nothing it condones their horrible postings.

    Good evening,

    https://www.facebook.com/pradeepkumar.harijan.75

    This is a profile of a Facebook user that does all of the above. I've reported it countless times but Facebook won't remove the pictures or delete the account even though I've sent them many messages about it. I've also provided screenshots to my comments but the follower count keeps on climbing. His profile picture is also stolen. He took it from another Facebook user called Alvaro Mel. https://www.facebook.com/MeeelFansAlvaro100.comm/ photos/a.968587626512006.1073741827.968574913179944/968587616512007/

    Please help take this son of a bitch down!

    Then you have a Greek page called "Μη μου πεις" which is also spamming the hell out of everything and even makes up its own stories. When people dare to post the truth they get blocked and their posts deleted by the administrators of the page.

    https://www.facebook.com/mimoupeisgr/

    I've also reported this page.

I know that most of you won't do this, but my friends will be the few that do.

    Please, in honor of someone who died, or is fighting cancer, or even had cancer, copy and paste. Write "done" in comments when you're finished. I can put a thank u on your profile! I know that 97% of you won't broadcast this, but my friends will be the 3% that do.

      Definitely, and it's not difficult either. They can bring up your photo, select to download it, once they have it they can rename it and then post it as their own. I'm a Commercial artist and often have to legitimately download customers photos and logos for reproduction purposes. These steps can easily be misused. Very simple.

      Recently, Facebook are more concerned with stopping real freedom of speech (like political shares - especially ones that don't fit with their narrow world view) than scanning posts and deleting spam like this. It probably helps their marketing strategy but they would also most likely never admit to that.

    Why does Facebook not take these down immediately? I automatically assume they are bogus, but 100000000's of people really believe the stories and that bit about Facebook donating money, is the biggest joke or prank of all of them.

    Maybe because of their compassion or they are vulnerable due to a loss or illness, they want to believe in this.

    I don't really know because it's clearly fake. The picture I just saw wasn't even a boy, as they were saying. It was a girl that had lost all of her hair from treatments.

    So, the person using the photo for "likes" or for shares are also stealing pictures of minors and that is a felony offense. I'm very grateful that you provided this link and all the info you have on here.

    I have friends that say it has to be true or Facebook would take it down!!! So, I go back to my first question, why does Facebook not immediately remove these posts?? I'm sure they have enough employees and the software to detect these types of scams, but they do NOTHING!! That makes me furious and should make everyone feel the same. Enough is enough!!

    Obviously there are tons of idiots that have nothing better to do than take advantage of people's emotions and morals just to get likes on Facebook! I don't understand what they gain from that!! They are not going to stop so Facebook should step up their game and stop it for them.

    A lot of times people do warn and comment the truth on these types of posts...then they are viciously attacked by all the people that believe the posts are real. So,it has to be dealt with by admin at Facebook from day one.

      Once you have seen those type of ads, please give us some details about them, so we can locate and report them to Facebook to have them remove. And, usually there is a small link, on the outside of the ad which you can use to report it.

      Facebook and other legitimate advertisement organizations vet ads to make sure they do not go against their policies, but sometimes the bad ads manage to bypass the vetting process. But, the same organizations are continuously working diligently to remove those type of ads, which are called Malvertising.

First I know that there are people ,who , for their own reasons have absolutely no conscience in defrauding others ,for their own gain , and I know that Facebook offers them a very easy and effortless medium for their greed,
    However there are legions of ordinary decent people who use Facebook for genuine reasons ,and Who get sincere and heartfelt sympathy for their predicaments and sorrows,
    If as the Article recommends we as a reasonably caring Nation stop trying to help our Fellow man in their sorrows or laughing with them in their success,s this Medium should immediately be closed down
    So a better option would be , as it would seem reading the article that Facebook has knowledge of the perpetrators of the Scams ,as , mentioned in the Article , then We would reasonably expect Facebook to cull these Fraudsters from this excellent and very necessary Social Medium

      If you don't personally know who is posting or the person in the post, a good rule of thumb is don't respond to these types of requests.

      If you see the same picture with different names or illnesses etc., it's phony. They turn up all the time, often a few months down the road.

      Some are even seasonal. If you feel driven to pray then do so, you don't need the public affirmation of 'like ' or 'amen' etc. to do good.

    I've tried dozens upon dozens of times, posting warnings and trying to alert my friends and family to concerns like this, and some worse, actually... it seems people are just plain gullible, and no matter how hard they're warned, their ignorance and their religious beliefs will always open them up to being clickjacked or phished or worse. I've had family members tell me straight out, word for word, "If it were a fake post, God wouldn't let it harm me, it's someone asking for prayer for a dying child - God wouldn't let things like that be taken advantage of! Stop trying to make me hold back from posting my religious posts, if I want to believe in my religion, nothing you or anyone else says will stop me!!" and then she deleted me from her friends list... A friggin FAMILY member. Ok, not immediate family, but a cousin of sorts. At that point, I had to close my eyes, turn my head, and walk away from the computer for a few minutes.

    I'm ashamed to have someone that naive and blatantly ignorant in my family. I tried to remind them what my career has been for the past 30 years, but they don't care. I started as a programmer, now I own a small IT company handling everything from PC builds up to 10,000 workstation roll-outs. We handled the Cuyahoga County BOE upgrade back in 1998-99, 27 Netfinity 7000's, a T1 to every admin building, and 25k workstations. That was my second largest gig. Can't disclose my largest, signed a contract ;) This kinda sh*t just irks me SOOOO much, because it shows people's ignorance - regardless of color, race, nationality, religion, whatever - people just believe what they want, no matter what. I hope your article, when I share it, stops a few more people on my list from being victims... seems they'll believe a strange random website over their actual friends most of the time. Sad, that.

    Please investigate a video that was shown yesterday on facebook. Someone was obviously recording it as it was happening! It showed a mother feeding her little daughter on the sofa, she was only about 2 or 3 yrs old! She would feed her then slap her around the face two or three times, then her mother continued to eat the food herself. Meanwhile the small child sat on the edge of the sofa and was violently sick on the carpet! The aggressive mother got her by one arm and threw her across the room! Then the mother got up and kept kicking her in the face and body while she was crying on the floor! This didn't end here she then proceeded to stand on her small frail body a couple of times.

    After this, the mother grabbed her one arm while she was dangling and literally threw her into another room, all we could hear is sickening screams, then the video finished.

    I have never seen anything so sickening before, I felt do helpless, if no one dies anything about this horrific scene that pool child will not survive living with this monster and she will suffer with pain till she passes!

    I find these posts particularly offensive, due to my work with people who have cognitive disabilities - several have been caught up with and upset by these "like harvesting" pages.

    I am concerned that it is not possible to block these people, and I wonder why this is the case. For example: I find a picture of a severely disable child on my newsfeed, I click on the source of the item, I find a person who had pages of offensive "click harvesting" material, I click the more link and choose "block", Facebook asks if I am sure, I say yes, then I get a message saying that block has failed, please try again. Do these people pay to avoid being blocked, or do the hack the system to avoid being blocked?

    I also want to comment on strangers impersonating high class military, by posting their photos and asking to befriend you, I go sucked in by a retired Admiral who said he was in Afghanistan on peace duty, and the birthplace was right but he didn't do his homework, this admiral had a wife and daughters, not a son in a private school, he was serious about starting a relationship and I told him I already was committed.

    He refused to stop pestering me until I told my daughter who works for a lawyer got in touch with the real Admiral and she emailed him about this impersonator using his name and photo to con people on Facebook, he was sorry this happened, so I deleted him and others from my friend list, and never heard from them again.

    I just wanted to tell you to pass it on so others won't get hurt or used by phony impersonators, I will be more careful next time who I I LIKE on my page, I did finally convince the phony admiral to stop what he was doing because it was wrong and illegal.

    The next day some stranger showed up on my accept a friend list, at this point I had enough of all the b.s. already so I deleted and refused him. Wouldn't you know it, it was the same guy impersonating the admiral, he was sorry for what he did and still wanted to get closer with me, I told him, to leave me alone, get another life, he originally came from Ahman Jordan, working in the Ukraine, another friend of his told him to do this stupid act to try to find someone on line.

    I just want people to be aware of this scam so they won't get involved and get hurt. Thanks for hearing my story. Please pass it on without my name please, thank you.

Just laying dead in a trash pile, thrown in small holes, one still had the cord still attached to the placenta.. The list goes on & on..
    Groups of people report the pics.. But FB ALWAYS replies they are not breaking fb rules.. WHAT?? SMH
    FB will take a conversation about Hillary Clinton down & ban people from fb for 3 days.. These are heated arguments.. Buy nothing bad ..
    Please tell me why it's ok to post stolen pics of murdered babies.. But we can't talk about politics..

How can I avoid this kind of contact without giving up my interest in some of the postings that are public. It is very difficult to tell the honest people from the dishonest. These men say the like a comment I have made and they they would like to get to know me better. Within a matter of days they are requesting money. They even show up on my "people you may know" list.

      There is no way to tell if a request is legitimate or not. Therefore, only accept friend requests from people that you know. And, once people start harassing you on Facebook, by asking you for money, or by other means, just unfriend or block them.

      To control your privacy on Facebook, on the top right-hand corner of your Facebook page, click the pad-lock icon. This will help you control who can contact you, who can see your stuff, or help you block or unfriend other Facebook users.

        Run hard and fast from people asking , begging for money. Only one thing I kinda disagree with is add ppl as friends I don't know. I've met some very nice people in my state to that I wouldn't never had known if I didn't take a chance. I've had tons of those men from overseas pushing for my phone number etc. Just ignore them or block them.

          I've also had many friends request from men before i decide what I want to do with , click on the profile picture on the far left of the box it will take you to their information site. You can tell more about them from there no profile pictures, nothing about their history and no friends. Do not accept them as a friend, I scan everyone before I accept, lately, I've had a request from someone I knew and when I accepted there was nothing but 1 picture of my friend and i had seen her profile page a few days earlier and every thing was there. Be careful.

    Has anyone heard of The Global Help Commission? They said they were part of the United Nations and get funding from 146 countries to help end poverty. They said that they were aware of my situation and that I was going to get $70,000.00 cash delivered to my door and they were processing my claim. Then at the very end they said there was a $430.00 Claim Processing Fee.

    I asked them how can you be helping poverty stricken people because none of them will have money like that so how are you helping? The Claims person, Bruce Michael Richardson, said that it was their policy. A girl contacted me and she said that it really helped her. I told her I really needed the money but did not have $430.00. She sent them $200.00 towards the fee for me. At first I thought it was a scam, but why would she pay $200 for me?

    I know she knows the Claims person, they both live in the same town in Georgia. So if she is working with them then they would only be making $230.00 if I could come up with the money. Is this a scam?

      Yes! It is a scam. She isn't paying the $200 for you. She probably works for the scammers and is giving you a "discount". For them to get $230 from you is better than them getting nothing at all. If anyone has to ask you for money for you to get money, It is a scam.

    A lot of times, the pictures are stolen, and whoever is in them is either all better or has long since died. And in the latter cases, to share this crap is to cause further pain to the friends and family of whoever is in the picture. Oh, and then there's the ones where the person in the picture has a congenital disability (not a disease or injury - important distinction), and you're asked to do something "for a cure" or to "pray for the child/ dog/ family/ doctors/ nurses/ etc.in the recovery process" or to "get FB to donate to the research fund for this AWFUL _DISEASE_ THAT _STEALS_ CHILDREN" (again, we aren't talking about diseases or injuries, but disabilities that people are born with that are a big part of who some people are) or to "prosecute the scum that did this to this innocent baby" (again, not diseases or injuries we're talking about) or to "raise awareness of (insert disability everyone who doesn't live under a rock knows about)" or some equally ableist, spammy, nonsensical garbage.

    Thank you for the info. Have always wondered about pics like this one. The thing is I'm not heartless and want the good Lord to help everyone who needs it and/or asks for help but He helps those who does as He asks of them.

    That's why He mentions a prayer closet or just plain getting on your knees every day. I have said Amen to loads of these but will stop. I will pray for them on my knees or in my prayer closet. I pray anyway for the entire world day and night. That is something everyone should do since our world has gotten bad and extremely corrupt. Not just one nation but all nations. May God bless you all. And should you not believe, I will still pray for you and you just continue to have a great day.

      Go back to your bank, you authorised the £1 not the £75.58 each month. Any and all payments to be collected from you should be clear and not in the small print, so your bank has to refund you. Go to the banking ombudsman if they still refuse.

      I often wonder, say for example with cancer, why saying Amen would change God's mind and in his/ her infinite wisdom, with the help of that little amen from a few people he should change his/her mind and take away the cancer he had previously given.

      They will send their potential victims Facebook friend requests.in some cases, to make the friend requests look legit, they will clone their potential victims friends' Facebook accounts, send the requests from the cloned accounts to make the requests seem as if they came from the potential victims' friends.

      Once potential victims have accepted the requests, they will start sending them spam, deceptive messages claiming that they are lottery winners, and links to fake Facebook apps and malicious websites that will infect their computers with spyware, Trojan horse and other malware, used by cyber-criminals to gain access to their victims' computers.

      They will also send potential victims links to phishing websites (fake websites looking like legitimate ones), where they will trick them into submitting their online accounts credentials,financial and personal information.

      The victims of the scam are usually Facebook users who are not so tech savvy, or not so familiar with the internet.

      The only way they'll stop is when enough of us stick together and completely stop liking and sharing posts and stop falling for their scams , then maybe hopefully, they either turn to a different career (no more thieving ) or turn themselves in, cause they've had enough and just want out! And we can only hope 😞

      The information the scammers get is not enough to steal your identity. What they will do is to use the information to contact you and attempt to scam you. So, look out for emails, text messages and social messages asking you to send more personal or financial information, or money.

    • Posted: Feb 2, 2016 at 10:32 AM by info

      It is hard to tell if posts for any cause are legit or not on Facebook. Scammers create thousands of different posts monthly and lure potential victims to them. So, if you are not a 100% sure a post came from a legitimate Alzheimers group or organization, do not comment on it, like it or share it.

      Remember, Facebook place a blue tick mark on the poster's profile page, which indicate that they(Facebook) have verified that the poster is legitimate. If you see the blue tick mark, you may trust the poster.

      For more information, please click here.

      If you want to help find the cure for Alzheimers and provide assist for persons suffering from the disease, find an organization and find out how you can contribute.

    I get a lot of requests from alleged military personnel on peace keeping missions . One asked me to pay for a leave package due to a family emergency. He even had another person acting as his supervisor. I offered him a plane ticket and he got very aggressive with me stating his supervisor can trace my IP address and I would regret not believing him.

      They images & stories behind them could well be real. But, even if they are no organisation who could truly help them would not be asking you to type 'AMEN'. Doing so does not give them any money or any other ways of helping them. If it was a legit charity they more than likely wouldn't use the images used in these posts to ask for help, & although they may ask you to pray depenidng on the charity, most would not do so to respect differing beliefs.

      Instead, they would direct you to ways you can donate, or to petitions you can sign. Even if the image & story is real, ANY post that asks you to simply type 'AMEN', or even worse, emotionally blackmails you into doing so, is ALWAYS going to be a scam. They will always be scum playing on the softer hearts & good intentions of those who feel for people in the photos.

      I also saw a photo back in 2008 that had a story attached that was not true. It was a photo of a little girl who's face was bruised & scratch. The story the posters gave was that the little girl had been beaten up & sexually abused by her Asian step-father. This was from a page claiming to be Christian, who were trying to get Muslims banned from the UK. The little girl was in my local newspaper a couple of days before, I also know her mum. The reason she had been injured to such an extent is because her nursery had left her completely unattended & another child had pinned her down, bitten, scratched & kicked her, whilst hitting her with toys. She also did not have a Asian Step-dad. She lived with both of her White British biological parents. (I still have the messages I sent to the mother & Facebook over this happening). The page that did this had actually named a local Muslim man as the man who did it, linking to his personal profile, telling everyone that he had not been reprimanded because of his ethnicity & religion. I don't know if he got any threats or abuse because of it, but I do know that the people who commented said 'AMEN' as asked by the poster, as well as posting threats & abuse in the comments. After contacting her mother & posting links to the news article almost every minute due to it being lost in the thread from the amount of posters I also decided to contact Facebook about it. Because of me posting the article in the comments so much the page decided to make me their next target. They tried to delete the link I posted a few times, then sent me private messages threatening me, then they made a post about me. They told people that I was an abuser sympathizer. That I worked for the papers & was involved in cover ups of these sorts of stories, & that I had threatened the mother with death if she came out & told the world the truth about what had happened. This led to me getting death threats, & the newspaper getting bomb threats from people disgusted that it could do those things. Eventually Facebook removed the posts, & the group itself. This led to investigations, which led to police investigations.

      Not only were the creators of the page charged with hate crimes etc, it was found that they were using the details of those who fell for it & typed 'AMEN' to scam them. They would get their contact details, if not via Facebook than by other, completely legal, means using the internet.

      They were then making phone calls & creating fake charity letters & emails, using the photos they'd used on that page & citing the charity number of legitimate registered charities, to get peoples bank details for donations. The difference between these communications & those of the official charities was using their own phone number & bank details.

      They'd not used these to take a load of money straight away either! They'd had people set up donations via Standing Orders, or Direct Transfers. They accepted cash donations & paid out to get a business like number, so to the unsuspecting person with true Christian values it seemed like a real charity. They'd been pulling this con practically since Facebook first launched & had gained thousands from hundreds of people sending £3 or so once a month!

      Best thing you could do, if you see anymore posts telling you to type 'AMEN' or anything similar, don't just keep scrolling, click the little drop down arrow & choose the option that allows you to hide all things like that from your timeline. When a legitimate charity pops up on your feed, one that you know is legit, then like or comment on their posts. Eventually Facebook's algorithms will work out that you do like real charities, but you don't like photo posts that contain phrases like 'Type 'amen' or 'scroll if you're heartless' etc. If you just keep in mind that emotional blackmail, & terrible spelling/grammar, are the 2 biggest signs of it being a scam, you should be safe.

        The communication of the word AMEN is spritual not electronic. You cannot communicate your spritual contact between you and GOD over facebook or any other means electronic. Praying for a cause is nothing to fear. What to fear is someone wanting to ridicule your actions. Facebook has plenty of ways to filter out junk.

    I don't understand why my friends, (some with degrees and in professions such as childcare and nursing), are sharing these posts.

    When you look at the source's facebook account you can see they put a lot of energy into sharing these posts. What they don't explain or consider is where they found the photo or other details such as "Whose child is this anyway?" "Did they intend for their child's photo to be shared publically?" "Is he child really sick or disabled or is the photo doctored?" "Has the person in the photo already been cured or died?" "Is this causing distress or offence to relatives?" "Does God read facebook....?"

    If a parent has shared their own post in this way I don't consider it offensive as I might not fully understand but if they feel it helps support them then I find that acceptable. However, I've only seen about two of this type of post that originate from family or anyone who has any apparent connection with the source of the photo.

    I've reported some posts too and I haven't seen any replies from facebook at all. Can friends see that you reported their (well their shared) post? One has blocked me since although others don't seem to have noticed my plea for common sense :( I feel that Facebook should take more responsibility for posts that are stolen or scammed by attention seekers.

        Mark Zuckerberg got a load of abuse, including scams posted on his posts, because of him getting his daughter vaccinated. Scams that are not just legally & logically proven, but medically/scientifically as well. Because some of them truly didn't break the T's & C's nothing could be done about it other than him blocking them. They need to change their T's & C's, and have needed to for a long time, but there's no elitism in it. Even when their founder is affected by it they act within the community guidelines.

        And I'm someone who got blocked & unfriended by Zuckerberg withing a week of adding him, due to differing opinions on hunting. I wasn't nasty or anything, we were having a civil debate & someone joined my thread to be nasty, so I got blocked alongside them. I'm even blocked from his dogs page.
