Facebook users are asked to delete or ignore messages that claim they are lottery winners because their names were found on a winning list. The fake messages are sent by cybercriminals and recipients should not 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. The messages claim the recipients are winners of Facebook sweepstakes, lottery or promotion. But, Facebook currently has no such lottery, sweepstakes or promotions.
