419 on Facebook

Cyber criminals target Facebook users:

It seems the 419 scammers have invaded Facebook. How the scam works this time is that they hijack someone’s Facebook profile then send messages to their Facebook friends asking for $500 under the premise that they’re stranded in Nigeria.

I don’t know about you but I think most of Facebook friends do not go to Nigeria on a regular basis. And if any of my Facebook friends were to ever get a message from me saying I’m in Nigeria you’ll definitely know its fake because I don’t even like to leave my house let alone the continent.
