Facebook Money Scam

My recent week has been one of fascination, misrepresentation, selfish and distracting people, strangely enough, 80% are from international locations.

I put this down to one major event, but I hold my breath to possibilities of human traits to screw their fellow humans for everything they work hard for in their lives,

This is no surprise I might add, it’s just that the Pandemic of covid-19 has released the raw animal instincts in this civilized sector of animals called humans, another level of intelligence and social respect for others they share the same basic rules of life, social bonding, and values.

Breaking This Down: Facebook Money Giveaway Scam

A fortnight ago I received from within Facebook social media platform, news of a lottery winning list for which I was also one of the participants, and that I was randomly chosen as a winner, though at the time this was not clear, it was a clever ploy to draw me in for further discussion.

WHO WOULDN’T WANT INFO?

Note at this time I was already suspicious and kept it as an interest to be reviewed later, I love to play along with such unsolicited approaches, it’s the Leo temperament I guess.

I let it lie low not following it up with much else than, ”what does my Zuckerberg have in mind?”

Coincidentally and for the records, someone who claims to be contacting me from the offices of FB and on behalf of Mr. Zuckerberg, wanted to discuss something? I asked what it was in my reply and no further response? so either it’s a scammer or halfhearted enquirer?

Kevin’s Case Study: Facebook Money Giveaway Scam

I had a person named Carnes Benny Lee that contacted me through Facebook to be my friend then started to contact me through messenger.

He said that Sheryl Sandberg the COO of FB told him to add me as a friend and to let me know I won the Facebook International Pool (FIPP) for $950,000. I knew it was a fake so I played along with him.

He spoke in pretty good English but it was broken up a bit. First I had to give him my name, address, age, etc. (which I did because it’s not anything that someone with google could not find).

I asked if this was a gimmick and he assured me this was totally real. He went on and on with information that made it sound very legit.

Batch number and serial number and ticket number and so forth and told me to write it down and not lose it. THEN came the bite! I needed to send money so the money could be sent to me.

Anywhere from $560 down to $385. the address to send it to was Facebook Inc, Attention department 415, PO Box 10005, Palo Alto, CA. 94304,

He even included pictures of people that had won in the past!!!! I mean this guy is/was good! The major goof that he made was for some reason he included a map that once clicked on brought up a google map with his coordinates!!!

Once I did the squeezing motion on my screen(mobile phone) I could see it was from somewhere in Nigeria, Africa! I have heard in the past that there is a lot of stuff going on from there.

So watch out people they are getting better and better at getting your money!!! Asked about 6 years ago

My Concerns: Facebook Money Giveaway Scam

My follow up research on the Facebook community page shared a similar case see below:

What is being done on the Facebook platform to eradicate these unwanted people, does Facebook’s social media strategy, set more definitive algorithms or administrative safety for the smart scammers and attackers now and in the future.

Can it ramp up Security to deter and punish through aggressive legal measures on these parasites of social life?

Strategy to protect the users on FB, what is being done to promote awareness other than the community, is there a tool to identify and relay back anyone’s findings easily

 

Summary

I admit I let this run on longer than I intended but I wanted to see how the minds and patterns of these people, could I learn an important lesson for future attempts to scam me on social media, emails, or phone calls.

The fact remains that if you didn’t apply, or be part of anything you know, it’s going to be a scam, If you believe that you can get anything in this life for free and certainly moreover in any random process, you are living in denial, you are already a fish on a large hook to be reeled in by the fisherman, so in a simple statement

”NOTHING IS FREE” WITHOUT IMPENDING UNNECESSARY CONSEQUENCES.
