Below are the latest guidelines that describe how to report an impersonation of a user account to Facebook security team.  Please be careful in accepting “FRIEND” or “CONTACT” requests as FAKE ACCOUNTS are used to gain trust & confidential information. These FAKE ACCOUNTS can gleam information even to create identity theft exposures. 

A few PERSONAL TIPs listed below when new FRIEND REQUEST is received:

1. Always verify before you trust (never click just on a photo recognition alone)
2. click on name of account (but do not yet CONFIRM as friend)
3. look at their list of friends (are there just a few — with strange & possibly fake accounts listed)
4. Do posts look out of character for person
5. Or if you actually accept the “friend request” – do you immediately get a private chat message probing for information
