Be careful! This scam could hack into your Facebook and Instagram accounts

In an age where we’re so dependent on social media, we have to be careful about who to trust, especially with our private information and security. There are plenty of scams out there that try to hack into our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts in order to collect our information or do even worse. We have to be careful. This is why, if you receive an email like this, think twice before clicking the link.

While it seems legitimate enough with the professional language, the signature of the “Facebook team,” and all, one glance at the email address shows that it’s just a regular Gmail account, not a real Facebook team member. Hackers are getting more and more crafty these days and it shows in how they operate.

Carlo Ople explains it well in a video about how influencers are getting hacked. Watch it below:

The same goes for Instagram messages and all.

Remember: Think twice before you click. Look carefully. You might just be falling for a scam.
