    I remember my first encounter with a fake Danielle. She spent 45 mins chatting to me about how I won. When she hit me with having to pay for something, I remembered “You never have to pay..”. I quickly did a scam search and and ended the chat session.

    I usually receive a friend request after making some kind of comment on the FB notices and now I find joy in going to their page and reporting them.

    I don’t want to see anyone else go through the emotional high of winning and then getting a slam-dunk let down as what happened to me.

  5. Below is the second FAKE Facebook Friend Request i have received today, I have reported both of them to Facebook, these scammers would work less if they would get a honest job,
