Type of a scam Other

I friended a friend that looked like someone from highschool. This person said she represented the COO from facebook and that she was contacting me to tell me I won $500,000 from a benefit fund. 5 people total won. I kept a running conversation with this person on my IM page so I cannot forward it, but I still have it. I was to pay $400.00 for fedex to deliver me a package and they needed the money now. When I stated I didn't have the money, then the pressuring started. I was told that I would be involved in money laundering. That a package was at the airport waiting for me to sent my money. I didn't give them any money. I felt threatened and told her so, she became what felt was hostile. I called the Toledo Police, they came out and read the text and filed a report. It was suggested to let you know about it as well.

I was contacted by a Facebook friend who stated my name was on a Facebook winners list. Winning $100,000.00 via UPS cash money delivered to my home within 24 hrs. My friend claimed he had received his money but later I found out his Facebook account had been hacked. I was shown a certificate from Facebook & Government Compensation below. This certificate was sent from a Facebook claims representative named Booker Lois Maxwell. I

googled Facebook claim reps and her picture was not there. I was also contacted by a male UPS representative asking if i paid $1000.00 tax & fees so he could delivery cash prize by 10am next day. Please advise if this is a scam. Thank you!

They're claiming that they work with Facebook and are giving away money - $950,000. They said they'll send the prize through UPS or FedEx, but you have to pay a delivery fee - $560, $470, or $370 - to receive it. I know this is a scam. Her name was Diane Shannon and she states she works for Facebook and they do these random drawings every three years. I want to alert the public of this.
