Beware of "Workers Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB)" Facebook Scam

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.

Congratualtions!!!

It is a money grant program which is donated to randomly selected people by the Workers Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB) to assist people financially, with money all over the world for hearing, disable, young, old and retired.

I saw your profile details with the agent in charge when my grant was delivered to me, that's why I decided to tell you about it.

    I received the same thing from a personal friend telling me he had received 50000.00 and wanted to know if I had received mine. I told him I didn’t know what he was talking about. He sent me the agents name Kathy Powell at 334-569-6949 and told me to send her a message to see if my name was still on list.

    He has my name and phone number as it is on FB also, said he would send it to Agent. He sent all this to my messenger. I googled it and read that it’s a scam.

    But I did not give him any information that he couldn’t have got off of my FB wall.

    I don’t know what to do about this or if I should do anything?

      I got the same kind of scam but they used a cousin of mines on messenger; he said he won $90,000 but it was not because I am trying to get in touch with California wcba.

      I believe it is to let them know about it and have not had any luck getting to talk to anybody on the phone

This woman Mary Rogers said congratulations you have been chosen to receive $100,000,000 ...my friend said he already got his money and that it’s not a scam...I didn’t do anything yet, but he said he sent $700 in for delivery and processing of the money.. she said it from the WCAB

      It is a scam. The scammers steal money from their potential victims by asking them to send money for delivery and processing fees before they will receive their so-called compensation. But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will take it and disappear without delivering what they have promised.
