In the message section of my Facebook page, I received the following communication beginning at 4:49 from a trusted friend. Only it wasn’t actually my friend. It was a scammer who hijacked my trusted friend’s Facebook account.
Hello How are you doing?
me: I’m fine. How are you?
Am fine doing great no complain, always thank God for life
Hope you have heard about the CDFA program going on?
me: No. I haven’t.

At the top right side of the message box is a star, indicated in the inforgraphic above with a red arrow. When selected, a window appears with the last option (circled in red) labeled “Report.”
Do this if and when this happens to you. Facebook actively manages scammers.
