Facebook scams are real in the same way as all scams are on social media.
Hackers and crooks send emails to prospective victims to get personal data.
They create an email, similar to an official from Facebook and ask for login details.
If hackers reach accounts, they can access other data such as from friends or acquaintances.
Everything that associated with emails from social media must ring the bell: something is going wrong.
Facebook never sends emails to users.
Besides, this giant always checks if you log in from another device or another place with different IPs.
Yes, in this case, you can get an email but not with the questions about personal data.
These scams find a place on every platform. Why? People always look for somebody to communicate, be friends, or marry.
Hackers target Facebook users creating false accounts and pretending being someone else.
Generals, soldiers, widowers, or unhappy spouses try to get naive people into traps.
Of course, it takes time, but usually, efforts pay off.
Scams are the dark side of the Internet. Common sense, intuition, and a clear mind can help to sort out what is the wrong snd what could lead to financial and emotional disasters.
