Type of a scam Tech Support

I am locked out of my Facebook account stating that I have malicious software on my computer however I do not. I have used several applications to scan my computer, not to mention that friends and family can log into their accounts using my computer. I also get the same message if I attempt to use my cell phone for this account. They are trying to force me to download software onto my personal computer.

Type of a scam Tech Support

I called thinking it was facebook tech support because I couldn't log in, and I ended up giving up my name, phone number, and state. I realized when the creep with an Indian accent said to "go too walmart and 11/7 and buy itunes card for verification 'baby'"

I received a text message by a lady saying she worked for Facebook and she was asked to get a hold of me by the CEO Mark. She said my name was one of the 10 lucky winners of $500,000,000.00. She was asking for a pic of me and a pic of my drivers license. She also said the fbi is aware of this promo going on. When I asked her if I was to call the fbi in Cali and in the same city as Facebook they would tell me yes they know about the promo.

The people go by the names of Nick, Phill, and Peter. They claim to be facebook and charge people 10.00$ to fix their computers however they are really just scaming to get money from people and they never fix the issues on the computer. These people are jerks and can be very verbally abusive.

We were gone but came home and someone had left a message for me saying they were security and I needed to call 855-587-8441. When I called they said they were Facebook. I hung up because we do not even use Facebook and I felt like it was a scam. The person had a very heavy foreign accent.

I was contacted thru Facebook by Mary James who asked me to befriend her. She told me I was picked by Facebook to receive a $600,000 in winnings. She wrote, hello, I am Mary from the Facebook head office. i was authorized to pass some information to you thru your Facebook account. but before I proceed I would like to know if you have heard about our ongoing Facebook promo 2017 and have any of our staff contacted you about your winnings. So i will connect you with CEO himself, Mr. Mark so that he can help you claim you winnings and guide you through while you confirm this information in order to forward it down to his office. What is your name, gmail and phone number so that i can forward it down to his office. Okay good and you can also contact him on his office mail [email protected] Kindly reply to your email now, sir. The CEO has left you a text now on your hangout. I went to the hangout and there was a picture of zukerbarc, I guess that was him. She wrote kindly reply to your hangout now, okay? You have been contacted on your gmail account, so kindly reply to your gmail okay? Go to your hangout, go and check it. I get a text that I should call 1 913 214 1517. They told me the package would be delivered today by Fed Ex but it did not come.

This morning, the Fed Ex office person will contact me to deliver the check. Fed Ex driver was on route. Got called by Fed Ex said the check is official.I called the Fed Ex guy and he said there was a glitch with the financial institution and I would need to give him $800 within 3 days or the offer will be removed. The documentation they showed me shows the presidential seal and official looking government documents. I contacted the number they gave me and the guy there does wood working and has gotten several calls. I did try to call Facebook through Google and it sounded like it was in Indonesia.

Type of a scam Phishing

I have a face book account and for the past few days I have been harassed by "friends" whom, I suspect, have been hacked. They urged me to contact a Stephanie Yvette George, who claims to be a Harvard Lawyer. It is, supposedly, to collect government funds, tax free, in exchange for my sending her a hunk of my own money! Having heard of such scams by Today Show's Jeff Rossen, I was on the watch for such things. Ms. George appears to be in cahoots with a Deborah Bearden West.

I just tried to access Fcebook from my desk top computer. I was on it less than an hour ago. It was fine. Facebook wanted me to log in again, and then will not let me on. Says I have malicious viruses, and I need to download THEIR virus protection. Of course I won't. I'm not going to, because my computer is fine. I'm a nut about keeping it clean. I did a full scan after a fresh update. I don't have any viruses. I'll have to use my phone until this is resolved I guess. I don't download anything....ever. I'm not having any luck resolving this issue.

The email appeared in my inbox on April 28,2017, It said that I had won a million dollars which I knew was a scam. I found a # to call on line, there is a # to contact on the email that was sent. I called and the name that was given me was Ryan Martin at ext 117. He wanted information from the email but I couldn't find it at that time. This person had a real heavy accent and kept trying to reassure me it was real. He waited for about 15 minutes till I told him I'd call him back. I looked on line for Face Book scams and sure enough it was one of the top 5 scams. I contacted and they told me to fill out this form.

I recently could not access Facebook. I called a friend to see if he would look up a telephone number for Facebook so I could talk to someone. I called 650 543 4800. I spoke to someone on the phone and they said they hold on one moment and I was connected to a gentleman name Joseph. Joseph stated for my problem to be corrected they would need $100.00 to correct the problem. I told him I did not do electronic banking. He stated they also took cash cards, any sort of prepaid card would work. I told Joseph that I would contact him after I purchased two $50.00 ITune cards. I called Joseph at 844 992 9994, which Joseph had provided me, Joseph took the numbers of the ITunes cards over the telephone and said to give him a few moments to work on the Facebook and that he would call me back. I never received a call back and my Facebook Page has not been corrected.

I received an email saying that Facebook has decided to check all accounts. When you go to the website listed it tells you it needs your email password to verify. The email hoster is StubHub, which is not affiliated with Facebook at all, its a ticket website for sporting events, concerts, theatrical performances, and other major events.

Same words as above because true:

A simple Facebook help for permanent deletion of Facebook acct. turned ugly because of faulty accusations of inappropriate material on electronic devices Facebook pressed had received. This information was absolutely NOT on any device of the account holder. No was not taken for an answer. Lengthy talk was given and fee was almost presented before account holder was compelled to hang up. The account was deleted. Facebook rep. denied still requesting payment. Facebook is always free.

I have received several IMs from the CEO of Facebook telling me that I have won a Facebook Lottery. First I was told that I had won $45,000 and given a claim number. I asked who I could call to be sure this was legitimate and was given a phone number. I called them and they said it is legitimate but they were mistaken and I had actually won $500,000 and needed to send $300 for registration and delivery fees.
