    If one has never visited any porn sites and hasn’t sat in front of their computer and exposed their private body parts, they would know that its a scam by a pervert. To use bitcoins, most people would be the higher income range. I got a FB message from a friend I don’t usually talk to but we see each other’s posts. Her profile picture was different that normal and she said she received $150,000 in cash, free and delivered to her home and it was from the American Gaming Commission. She gave me a number to call and ask for a “Calming Agent,” and fill out forms. I checked on line and the area code was from Jamaica. My friend had no idea her identity was being used. I forwarded all the messages to FB and haven’t heard anything about it.

    Exactly, Karen, I came into this with a clean conscience knowing I’ve never done anything described in the email. This scam has become very prevalent this week though. Identity theft is rife, and sadly, Facebook is where a lot of that takes place. When I was a regular user, I reported fake accounts all the time. Facebook never deleted them all. I can probably still find you a dozen reported fakes at the drop of a hat, where Facebook has allowed them to survive and con people for years.
