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.
