SCARS|RSN™ Scam & Scamming News: Facebook Gets Serious – Fake Account Removal Doubles In 6 Months To 3Billion Fake & Scammer Profiles

Nearly all of them were caught before they had a chance to become “active” users of the social network.

In a new report, Facebook said it saw a “steep increase” in the creation of abusive, fake accounts. While most of these fake accounts were blocked “within minutes” of their creation, the use of computers to generate millions of accounts at a time meant not only that Facebook caught more of the fake accounts, but that more of them slipped through.
