There’s a new Facebook hoax going around — and it’s targeting your inbox.
“We’ve heard that some people are seeing posts or messages about accounts being cloned on Facebook. It takes the form of a ‘chain mail’ type of notice,” a Facebook official said.
Here’s what happens: you receive a message from an existing Facebook friend telling you they’ve received a friend request from you. Then it says to check your account and instructs you to forward the message to all your friends.
But users are following these actions without actually checking if they have a duplicate profile and it’s leading to a lot of confusionOriginal Source
