Facebook Impersonate Scam to Ask Victim's Friends for Money

We have witnessed many fake social media profiles in both Facebook and Tagged. Most of the accounts are pretty "harmless".

Today, we have been notified about a more unusual impersonate scam (has happened before though) that the scammer is trying to con the victim's friends into "loaning" him/her money.

The victim is Lyndie Ong,, a Malaysian.

We would like to advise everyone that if you happen to receive a text from a friend whether through social media or SMS to ask for "help", it's better to double confirm by calling the person directly to hear the voice, or even to meet up the person. You will never know who has hacked or stolen your friend's account or even phone.
