    Recently had a issue with an attempted Facebook scam. A couple of days later had a private message from someone in Oklahoma, "hello" ignored this. Same person again "Mark" ignored.
    Anyone's else had any funny business from FB.

    It was a fake Facebook page, (safety page reopen)saying my page was going to be closed down due to an infringement, then gave a list of possible issues, which I had been reported for, clicket on it. Was then required to enter password. Then redirected to a page that wanted credit card details. That's when I realised it was a scam. I blocked it reported it. Changed my passwords on everything just incase.

    Ah ok I see. Not had this myself but there are always scammers out there. Especially targeting FB being that it's so popular
