Officials: don’t fall for Facebook hoax

You’ve probably gotten this message or seen it posted on your newsfeed: “hi, I actually got another friend request from you yesterday.” It looks innocent enough, a heads up from a concerned friend.

It’s not.

It’s part of a large phishing attempt from groups of hackers who did legitimately clone accounts over a hear ago, according to consumer watchdog groups.

Don’t click on any message or follow directions sent via Facebook.
