Facebook: A New Hoax Becomes Viral On The Social Network Platform

Several Facebook users reported that their accounts had been cloned after receiving a double friendship request message asking them to forward the message to friends.

According to a report by Time, Facebook users would be led to believe that their accounts have been cloned. The hoax message became viral Sunday, indicating that the sender had received a duplicate friend request from the recipient.

Facebook was still to comment on this.

In 2016, a similar mass cloning scam occurred on Facebook. “There seems to be no reason at the moment to send a message telling friends that their account may have been cloned without receiving a duplicate request,” the report says.

Some users who forwarded the message went on social media, claiming that their accounts had been hacked.
