Another identity theft scam has emerged that involves Facebook. Last Thursday, a Madison, Wisconsin woman reported to the Madison police that someone had stolen her identity by hacking into her computer, accessing her financial records, changing her e-mail and even logging into her Facebook page.
While the thief was apparently not able to directly access the victim's bank accounts, he or she did send a message to the victim's Facebook friends, claiming that the victim had been mugged in London and needed cash. The message even gave an address and phone number to accomodate the transfer of funds.
So, Facebook users, beware of this scam.
