Hackers have come up with a new trick that is so convincing that Homeland Security has put out notices about it!
Hackers contact you via Facebook or games on Facebook and attempt to gain your trust.
They tell you a story about a ‘hardship’ they are going through and convince you to send them money.
Hackers then spoof a law enforcement number and call you telling you that the money you sent was sent to a member of Isis!
They threaten you with imprisonment for assisting a terrorist group and tell you to contact a lawyer they provide.
The ‘lawyer’ requires a retainer fee up-front upwards of $1,000!
When all is said and done, you get scammed twice by the same people!
How to protect yourself:
Don’t send money to anyone that you don’t know and if they are pretending to be someone you know, contact that person outside of Facebook!
