Natasha Nicholls gives some friendly words of wisdom to those that use Facebook:
" Warning! Almost every account is being cloned. Your picture and your name are used to create a new face book account (they don't need your password to do this this). They want your friends to add them to their Facebook account. Your friends will think that it's you and accept your request. From that point on they can write what they want under your name "
" I have NO plans to open a new account. Please DO NOT accept a 2nd friend request from "me". please forward to all your contacts "
As Facebook has grown in popularity among celebrities, fans, and anyone with a computer it has also been a target for a battery of scams. many times these fake profiles that Natasha is talking about will either try to get money from people or get people to join sites or communities. In all cases these are scams that don't represent the person they are impersonating and cause varying forms of damage to the people that place trust in the words of the person they think it is. Like any other medium on the Internet or social medium ensure you know who you are dealing with and don't just blindly do what they say. Facebook was meant to be a place for those that we want in our lives at some level, let's ensure it is a safe and positive experience.
