At the moment, Facebook is being flooded with fake profiles trying to infiltrate property rental pages and groups to find easy prey and they have been quite successful.
They wait for unsuspecting people to post requests for property rentals which spurs them into action by creating an attractive offer around the property request and then requiring payment to be made via Paypal while insisting that the person sending payment selects the “friends and family” option which gives you no payment protection.
We’ll be maintaining a list of these fake profiles and will add them as they appear so if any of you want to contribute, please add your comments below with the suspected fake profile links so that others can avoid potential problems.
