Over the years I've had many fake facebook friend requests. I fell for one where he told me he was the captain of Allure of the Seas, and writing from his ship. I only realised he was fake when he said he was having trouble logging into facebook and could he have my mobile number to log back in.
Before I found out about scam baiters I would reply to them that if they didn't take me off their scamming list I would call the police, and it worked for a while as I didn't have any friend requests.
Then today I had a friend request from an obvious fake profile, so I asked him why he sent me a friend request. Usually they would reply straight away by telling me they love me and things, but I haven't had a reply yet. This is their profile:

Welcome PP.
If you are attracting scammers to your personal Facebook page it is definitely not a good idea to bait them, we advise doing this only from anonymous accounts or profiles.

I have removed the direct link to his profile but left the name as it is very clearly not the us soldier being portrayed.

Removed unnecessary quote of the previous post to keep everything neat, tidy, and easy to read. - bware419ers

OK I didn't accept his friend request, so he can't see my personal information
