WARNING: Facebook “Verified Page” Scam Leads to Hijacked Pages

WARNING: Facebook “Verified Page” Scam Leads to Hijacked Pages | Computer Technology-Hardware, Software, Data Recovery | Scoop.it

There is a new scam on Facebook that tries to hijack pages from their administrators by posing as a page verification message from Facebook. Freshome, an online architectural magazine, fell victim to the scam, and lost control of their Facebook page.

Bonnie Burns's curator insight, July 9, 2014 11:38 AM

Here’s how the hoax works: a cybercriminal created a fake profile with the user name “Verified Page.” Their profile picture was the Facebook verified page symbol, so when the cybercriminal sent a message from this profile to Freshome, they thought that Facebook was finally contacting them to verify their company Facebook page. However, the hoaxer instead took control of the magazine’s page and unpublished it.

Marian Royal Vigil's curator insight, July 10, 2014 9:55 AM

Beware of FB messages with the Facebook verified page symbol.
