Facebook Scam - Madison, WI

 

December 2016

This just in from a Madison, WI jeweler:

"Most Wisconsin jewelers have been targeted this morning in an attempt to access your Facebook credentials. The notice is threatening the closure of your page for failure to comply. It looks convincing, because it comes in as a notification from "Ads Notify Maintenance". If you visit their account page, you will see they hit almost every jeweler in WI in hopes to get your login, date of birth and credit card information."

The jeweler notified Facebook of the scam page and advises others to do so. If you provided your login and passwords at all, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY.

Please notify MJA of any suspicious actions - if you have anything to report
