Facebook impersonation scam (hijacked profile scam)

Without doubt, Facebook is the most popular social media platform, hitting two billion of active users per month. It’s also the channel where most of the brands and companies communicate with customers and users, and promote their products/services. Facebook represents a trustworthy channel for many users.

If most friends, colleagues and social connections are on Facebook, it is perfectly normal for such a place to also attract the unwanted attention of online scammers/hackers.

Since it is so important for your privacy and online security, you should be very careful in protecting your personal online accounts just the way you protect your banking or email account. Set a double authentication method as soon as possible. This will act as an additional layer of security, besides your password and providing extra security to your Facebook account.
