Beware: Modus About Fake Facebook Account Targeting OFWs!

If you're an OFW or a family member of an OFW, this post is for you.

A new modus of people who don't want to stretch their lazy bones is out. These bad people will create an account on Facebook with your own profile picture as their profile, and the name is exactly the same as yours. Gagayahin talaga nila ang account mo.

Once they're done creating one and copying pictures from your account, they will start their evil plan. They will send messages to your family members asking for money. 


To avoid and to not fall for this kind of modus, Facebook user Lee CaƱete has some pointers.

1. Siguruhing ang inyong mga picture sa FB ay naka-friends only para maiwasang makuha ng ibang tao.
2. Iwasang gumamit ng picture nyo sa inyong Cover Photo, dahil ito ay hindi naise-setting at laging naka-public lang.
3. Gawing "only me" ang setting ng inyong Friends List. Dahil nandito rin nakalagay ang lahat ng kamaganak nyo. Hindi naman kailangan malaman pa ng publiko kung sino ang mga Friends at Families nyo dito sa FB. Ito ay para maiwasang malaman ng mga masasamang tao kung sino ang pamilya nyo na nasa Pinas.
4. Iwasang ilagay ang inyong CP# sa info nyo sa FB.
5. Paalalahanan ang inyong pamilya na kapag may mga ganitong pangyayari na hihingan sila ng pera thru FB o anumang Social Media, siguruhin muna sa pamamagitan ng pagtawag sa inyo.
PLEASE SHARE PARA MABIGYAN NG BABALA ANG IBANG KAPWA OFW.
