What are some common money scams I should look out for when sending or receiving money in messages?

In the rare case there is a money scam on Facebook, cyber criminals will either create fake accounts or hack into existing Facebook accounts of people you may know. The fake or compromised accounts will then try to trick you into giving them money by sending you personalized messages. If a scammer tries to message you, report them.
Here are some common money scams you should look out for when sending and receiving money in messages:
  • Romance scams: Romance scammers typically send romantic messages to people they don’t know, often pretending to be divorced, widowed or in a bad marriage. In order to pay for things like flights or visas, they’ll engage in online relationships in hopes of receiving money. They may use photos they’ve found online of representatives from official institutions like the military, or government agencies. Their goal is to gain your trust, so the conversations may continue for weeks before they ask for money.
  • Lottery scams: Lottery scams are often carried out from accounts impersonating someone you know, or fake profiles pretending to represent an organization. The messages will claim that you’re among the winners of a lottery and that you can receive your money for a small advance fee. The scammer may ask you to provide personal information, such as your physical address or bank details.
  • Donation scams: These scams are done by accounts impersonating famous religious figures, or by accounts pretending to be representatives from various charities or orphanages. In the messages, the scammers will ask for donations.
  • Inheritance scams: The scammer will claim to be a lawyer or from another legal authority, pretending to represent the estate of a deceased person. The messages will state that you’re entitled to the inheritance. The scammer may ask you to provide personal information such as your physical address or bank details.
  • Loan scams: Loan scammers send messages and leave posts and comments on Pages and in Groups offering, or claiming to know someone offering, instant loans at a low interest rate for a small advance fee.
To protect yourself from scammers, watch out for the following:
  • People asking you for money who you don’t know in person
  • People asking you for advance fees in order to receive a loan, prize or other winnings
  • People asking you to move your conversation off of Facebook (ex: a separate email address)
  • People claiming to be a friend or relative in an emergency
  • Poor spelling and grammatical mistakes
