Facebook Scam

We have been made aware of another scam in Allen County. It seems people on Facebook are hacking accounts and using those accounts to reach out to people on the victim’s friends list. The hacker then asks for money posing as the victim. We encourage you to never send any money to anybody without confirming they are who they claim. We also suggest removing your phone number from your Facebook profile. It seems the scammers are also targeting phone numbers and will call/text throughout all hours of the day/night. One of the phone numbers being used is 419-972-1105. An international number of 234-816-234-0980 is also being used.
