Beware of Scammers Posing as Facebook or FB Agents Requesting Friend Requests

Facebook users, beware of scammers posing as Facebook or FB Agents or representatives, requesting friend requests. Facebook doesn’t have agents who send friend requests to their users. So, Facebook users are warned not to accept friend requests from users posing as Facebook agents. Most of the friend requests from users claiming that they are Facebook agents, are lottery scammers, claiming the potential victims are winners of the so-called Facebook lottery, but there is no such lottery.

Please continue below.

Why Scammers Sent Friend Requests to Their Potential Victims?

Once scammers have tricked their potential victims into accepting their friend requests, they will start sending them fraudulent messages, spam or unsolicited messages, phishing links that will take them to fake websites to steal their information, or malicious links that will take them to dangerous websites that will infect their computers with spyware or Trojan horse. The fraudulent messages will claim that potential victims are so-called lottery winners and they need to send money in order to claim their prizes.
