Recently, we took a report of a fraud through Facebook. A friend told our victim from a Facebook messenger that she qualified for a loan or grant but had to send money to another account to secure the loan or grant. The victim used messenger to verify the details of this transaction- She later learned that her friend's Facebook account had been hacked and she sent the money before knowing this.
If you have a friend on Facebook, messenger or sends you a message about a Loan or Grant you can get by sending money to them or an unknown account, Don't! It should never take money to get money- Call that friend and make sure that their account has not been hacked, ask them why they would have sent you this information to verify if it is legit and again, never send money via gift cards to anyone on social media accounts.
