Scam Alert: Don't Fall For This Facebook 'Friend Request From You' Message

Facebook account hacked scam message A scam Facebook message has users telling each other their accounts were hacked

Clones, different from hacks, means a spammer created a new account under your name, using your pictures and requesting your friends. And you're just making it worse. Your friends will think that it's you and accept your request.

Kelso said the best way to keep your Facebook account from getting cloned is to hide your "friends list".

Essentially, the message is warning that your Facebook account has been cloned.

Other easy steps to take to prevent being hacked on Facebook include regularly changing your password, reporting a hacked account, reporting suspicious messages or applications, and strengthening your other privacy settings.

Vice President Pence Accuses China Of Trying To Interfere In U.S
He said China is unlikely to stop such activities or those that help shape the American public's views of China. He delivered the speech to a right-wing Washington, DC think tank, the Hudson Institute.

"Your account isn't sending duplicate friend requests". It sounds like a valid warning with Facebook's recent security breach, but is it for real? From that point on they can write what they want under your name.

"Hi.... I actually got another friend request from you yesterday...which I ignored so you may want to check your account... hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward...."
Good Luck! PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT A NEW ONE FROM ME AT THIS TIME.

Officials encourage you to ignore the message and not to follow the message instructions because it only spreads the hoax further. "Please forward to all your contacts", the message reads. People can report fake Facebook profiles here.

That will give you all the information you need to figure out if you someone has access to your Facebook account that should not.
