Facebook users are asked to delete or ignore messages that claim they are have won thousands or millions of dollars in the Workers Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB), and that their names were seen on the winners' list. Some of the messages claim that the government is giving away grants and the recipients' names are on the list. But, the messages are fakes that are being sent by scammers. Therefore, recipients of those messages are asked not to respond to them with their personal information, or follow the instructions in them, even if the messages appear as if they were sent by a friend or family member. Scammers have cloned or hijacked some Facebook users' accounts, and are sending fake messages to their friends, in an attempt to trick them into sending their personal information and money.
