From Edinburgh, United Kingdom
THIS IS NOT A MAN FROM 'EDINBURGH' AT ALL.. THE MAN IN THE PICTURES IS CALLED ALEXEY LUSHNIKOV, HE IS A RUSSIAN ARTIST AND PRESENTER MUCH ABUSED IN SCAMMING.
Once you accept a Friend Request from a stranger you have invited him into your life and opened the door onto it. Your Friends List is there... open for all to see AND USE.. AND THEY WILL USE IT IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.
This scammer went through the woman's Friend List... he told each of them he wanted to deposit money with them for the woman to pay and employee for him... and also to deposit $300 a week for her to do this for him... SO ASKED EACH ONE FOR THEIR ACCOUNT AND ROUTING NUMBER AND THEIR BANK !!
YOU CAN HIDE YOUR FRIENDS LIST... AND ON TODAY'S FACEBOOK YOU SHOULD ALWAYS DO SO.. WHY DO YOU THINK SCAMMERS DO?
*STOP BLINDLY ACCEPTING EVERY FRIEND REQUEST YOU GET FROM ANY RANDOM STRANGER... DOESN'T MATTER WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE. IT IS GIVING SCAMMERS THE OXYGEN TO LIVE !!
IF THEY GET NO MONEY FROM YOU, THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH YOUR PROFILE AND YOUR FRIENDS LIST. MAYBE CONTACTED PEOPLE ON YOUR FRIENDS LIST AND GONE THROUGH EVERYTHING FOR INFORMATION TO SELL AND PICTURES TO USE FOR FUTURE SCAMS..
Or as in this case... TO SCAM YOUR ENTIRE FRIENDS LIST.
