Facebook users, beware of the fake message below, which claims that the recipients' Facebook accounts will be deactivated because someone has reported them. The fake message was sent by cyber-criminals and not by the Facebook Ads Team, so recipients of the fake message should delete it and never follow the instructions in it. Cyber-criminals/scammers are sending the fake message to trick Facebook users into clicking on the link in it, which will take them to malicious Facebook apps and phishing websites that steal personal and financial information. Facebook users who were tricked by the fake message into installing malicious Facebook apps should remove them, and those who were tricked in submitting their financial information on a phishing or fake website, should contact their banks.
