Have You Gotten This Message? If So, You May Have Been Hacked…
Yes, there is yet another facebook hack going around. You will get a strange message form one of your friends saying they got a new friend request from you and that you'll need to follow prompts to get rid of it. DO NOT FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. The message in itself is the hack. If you do follow the prompts, your page will send out the same message to your friends list. To fix the problem just change your password, and ignore strange messages from now on.
Now there is a chance there is a fake you out there, a good way to see if there is, in fact, a fake you out there trying to steal all your friends is to just do a search for your name. If you see another you out there, you can click on the “Report this profile” button on the bogus account’s page to have it reported to Facebook. If all things work as they should, the bogus account should be shut down within 24 hours.
Also, if you did fall for this scam, you are in good company, cause my mom fell for it too, and she's the best!
