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

WARNING: Facebook “Verified Page” Scam Leads to Hijacked Pages | SEO Tips, Advice, Help | 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 insight:

However, the hoaxer instead took control of the magazine’s page and unpublished it.
