BFAG Facebook Scam - Government Financial Assistance Group

A few days ago I almost became a victim of the BFAG Facebook scam. The scam, which claims to be a so-called "government financial assistance" group, used a good friend of mine's FB account to lure me in. I filled out all the requested information, which I should have not done, and at the end, they asked for $2000 to pay for the delivery via UPS or FedEx when the "money" arrives. Of course, I reported them to my friend, and then posted on my FB account about my experience.

If I hadn't been through a hurricane, I would have never considered even thinking about this. Please let everyone know that if someone tells them they saw their name on a federal program's list for assistance, it is a scam.

    Hi, I have never heard about BFAG before till one day, my teacher recommended it to me. From that time up to now, I communicated with her via Facebook (her picture showed up)She said the government gives away money to retirees, workers, and old and disabled people kind of thing. I was sceptical, but because she was my teacher and I thought it was not possible that we would scam out of me. She shared with me a link saying a contact agent named Williams Joseph Mark now just follow the link with pictures of FedEx trucks and she would guide me through. I got a link and I sent that agent my name, phone # and address. Then that agent sent me a message saying hold up while he was checking whether or not I was eligible.

    He then sent me a message that I am eligible, just provide info and my info is safe with them. I saw a feature that asked for info. Full name, home address, DOB, Marital Status, Own a house or rent, Phone numbers, Valid email, Occupation, Your monthly income, Good clear picture of your ID card. Here we go, I know it for sure that it is a scam. As I said I saw this before, so I asked my teacher that it is legit. She said it is and she keeps asking me about it like pushing me to rush a process. I felt weird. I sent my teacher telling her that I think it is a scam. She said it is not. Fortunately, I did not give away any further my info. Is it a scam anyone?! Be careful!
