As of now, there is currently no reason to even share this type of information. These are an example of a hoax that just goes around on Facebook getting people to share and spread the word for no reason. Real hackers are not going to go under names that people are going to recognize and share. They will always be creating accounts and attempting to gain access before you even find out about their old accounts.
So How Do Our Techs Suggest You Maintain Your Security on Social Media?
Here is what our tech support has come up with in case you get hit with a message like the one above.
1. If you do not know the person, you can just decline the friend request. Having them as a friend will not impact your Facebook. Also, if they do not know you, they will probably not even realize that you declined them. If they realize you declined them and would like you to add them, you will probably get a message from them also.
2. If you think you know them, check out their Facebook and view their photos. They may be your daughter’s new boyfriend or some sort. But you can get that image from their photos, mutual friends or even asking your friends and family.
