Who Needs Friends...

Published onsdag 12 december 2007 kl 13.31

A woman from Skåne in Sweden’s south has been defrauded out of hundreds of dollars after being hit by a scam on the popular website Facebook.

According to a report in the Sydsvenskan newspaper the woman was contacted by a person impersonating an old friend of hers, who then tipped her about an American lottery system. After registering into the system the lady was then contacted to say that she had won a trip to Florida. Shortly after she was contacted once more saying they needed her bank details as she was to pay a small part for the cost for the trip. After giving her details she realised it was a scam and the lady then attempted to block her credit cards, but by then the money was already taken.
