Internet Fraud Alert - Facebook
June 27, 2011
Charlottetown Police Services received a complaint regarding the utilization of Facebook to perpetrate a fraud. Fraudsters are creating a Facebook account using a name and profile picture from an existing Facebook account. Once this has been achieved they attempt to solicit money from others using Facebook. This is a common Nigerian “419” scam, and in this case originating from Lagos, Nigeria.
