Facebook dating scams
I’m not saying everyone’s out to get you This kind of scam is the perfect example of how your account can be misused should your details somehow get stolen. Your friend has lost her wallet in Lagos and now needs a quick Western Union money transfer or else she’ll surely be stuck. Has she simply forgotten to log out at an internet cafÃ© and had her account compromised? These kinds of scams prey on those who make use of public access points, but you don’t necessarily need to be travelling to have your details stolen.
Picture the scene – one of your good friends has gone away, backpacking through some enchanting yet fairly dangerous places. If you do get any messages from friends asking for sums of money (whatever the reason), you should immediately become suspicious.
I put in a complete weekend taking a look at photos!
All that you do is have a look at photos of individuals and say regardless of whether you see them desirable or otherwise not.
If you can get to an internet cafÃ© you can get to a phone – never send money without overwhelming proof of who you are sending it to.
Any group that attests to having some fantastic feature appear on your account upon joining is a scam.
Even the messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed.
A portion of these scams are initiated via a simple friend request.
You won’t be getting a free i Pod by filling out that survey, simply providing someone else with your data that can then be used for unsolicited contact.
