Latest Facebook Scam Seeks Donations


Is nothing sacred?

Scam artists on Facebook are impersonating popular religious leaders in order to solicit "donations," according to the Better Business Bureau.

The scammers put up a fake profile with the name and picture of a famous preacher and write posts about the importance of giving to charity, along with a handy link to the charity he or she supposedly recommends. Of course, the charity is a front and the money goes straight into the scammer's pocket.

If you have already connected to a fake profile, "unfriend" or "unlike" the page, then report it using these directions.
