So I get a message to the effect that this poor FB user is penniless, sick and depending on his brothers and sisters to find him a place to sleep, could I please consider sending him some charity. Jesus bless me, blah, blah, blah. I followed his profile link to see if I could learn anything. His profile is pretty much open to the public, so I checked it out. He has some nice pictures up there. Very interesting indeed.

He wouldn't have found me because I keep myself as private as possible on FB, but he's a friend of a friend who games. I've warned the friend that this guy is using his friend's list to try to scam people.

Honestly? Facebook? Approaching people on Facebook works for scammers?

I saved the profile link if anyone wants it for any reason. I blocked the guy, myself, because it kind of creeped me out, not that I would have baited someone who messaged my FB account.

It could be a beggar, which we don't bait.

As Rattlesnake said, we don't bait beggars.

But as far as trying to pick up vics on facebook goes, it is a very common occurrence. Over at scamwarners we see romance victims (or near victims) every day who met their scammers on facebook--and my baiting profiles have numerous real scammers as friends--because they approached my characters with friend requests.

Beggar or scammer, he's not hurting any from the looks of things. Hopefully people will notice that before being fooled into sending him funds.

Facebook can be a great baiting tool. It adds realism to a character and lets you spread a bait across multiple baiters (and scammers Wink )Run in parallel to an email and phone bait, it brings a richness and aroma to a bait that lesser social media systems cannot match, rich meaty chunks ... cont. p94
