Scammers are using websites like, Craigslist, local classified advertisement websites to lure potentials victims into their traps, by posting advertisements asking potential victims for access to their Facebook accounts for a fee. The potential victims who fall for the scam and give the scammers access to their Facebook accounts will regret it because the scammers will use the accounts fraudulently. Facebook accounts that are used fraudulently will be terminated or suspended by Facebook, and the illegal activities that the scammers use the accounts for will be traced back to the owners of the accounts, who may end up in jail and may pay thousands of dollars in legal fees to clear their names.

The Fraudulent Website -

How does the Scam work?

The scammers will use the Facebook accounts to advertise their scams to millions of Facebook users using stolen credit cards or hijacked PayPal accounts to make payment. Facebook advertisement is the most effective way for scammers to reach their potential victims. They may also use their victims’ Facebook accounts to send spam and dangerous links to their friends which go to malicious and phishing websites. And, once the friends see a post or message coming from their friend, they will instantly think the message is legitimate and click on the malicious or phishing links, which will take them to dangerous websites that contain malware. Once on the dangerous website, the potential victims may be tricked into downloading fake and malicious software that will infect their computers/devices with viruses or Trojan horse. The potential victims may also be taken to phishing websites, where they may be tricked into submitting their personal information, financial information, or sending money to the scammers.

The scammers may also use the Facebook accounts to falsely inflate the "Like" count of a fraudulent website, give the same website positive reviews or promote it.

It is important for Facebook users to remember that they should never lend their Facebook accounts to anyone, whether for a fee or not, or give someone access to it. Also, Facebook users should not give their Facebook username and password to anyone, and Facebook users who have done so already should change their passwords immediately.

Also, online users should never give strangers remote access to their computers via TeamViewer or any other remote access software. Online users who were already tricked by RentYourAccount into giving them remote access to their computers should check their computers for spyware and other malware than can be used to hijack their computer, steal their information, or use their computers to commit cyber crimes. Online users who are not tech-savvy may take their computers to a tech-savvy family member or to a computer repair shop for help.

Why the HE|| would anyone in their right mind risk having their account frozen or deleted entirely by handing over complete unfettered access to their entire facebook account to someone that they know absolutely nothing about?

and since 'renting' facebook accounts or providing access to others is in direct violation to the Facebook TOS Especially when doing so would make them completely personally accountable and financially liable for anything done with, posted to or charged to their account

Please confirm if the below is legit:

"We would like to rent out your FB account so we could run our ads campaign, mostly for beauty, health, gold and other financial promotional ads targeting United Kingdom audiences. You will receive $100 for a month of rent, payment can be pro-rated (depends on when the campaign was activated) and payable on the 7th of the following month. Our Ads campaign has a 30-day period contract, after the contract, you decide if you still wanted to renew your campaign for another 30 days.

To start with the job, your account needs to undergo a 3 days preparation before we fully launch the ads campaign to your account. We will provide you a detailed instruction on how to create an FB page and what are topics that you need to post on the page. Basically, posting on the page you created is the preparation here.

Facebook requires an account to be at least one year old and have legitimate activity on them to be considered allowing ads to be run. We do not have the time to create new accounts and set them up with years worth of data and activity, and we would like to rent a real, quality account from you.

Just to let you know, every personal Facebook account has an "Ads Manager" account associated with it. You should know that all advertising through your Facebook Ad account is anonymous (your name will not be associated with any of the ads we post). Also, we will not have access to the rest of your Facebook and we will never ask and do not need the username / password at all.

If in doubt, please visit this website for any further information. Do let me know if you have any other questions upon reading the website. ( NOTE:(Please note the WEBSITE mentioned is for US renters ONLY, rates, offer, requirements set for your COUNTRY is different from the site)"

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
