RSN™ Anti-Scam Clue: Social Media Friends
When you look at a Facebook Profile and you suspect it might be fake, look also at the FRIENDS.
NOTE: real people don’t let strangers look at their friends (usually), so if you are not yet this person’s friend, and you can see all of their friends – RED FLAG. Though it could just be a person that doesn’t understand privacy settings.
If you have not locked down your privacy setting to prevent strangers from seeing your critical & personal information, such as your Facebook Friends List, then you need to do it now!
Scammers want you to see their friends list, so they can convince you they are real. It also creates a sense of competition that they use to accelerate the scam.
