If you're an ordinary person like me, Sunday would have come with a surprise of duplicates for you.
Suddenly, there's more than one account out there with your name on it. Problem is, you didn't create the fake profile.
Another thing that we noticed: it's always your first name, second last name, and then a series of numbers.
It's scary to be honest. Almost all my friends have reported having a fake account with their name that they never created.
So here's how you can properly report those fake profiles. We'll use my best friends fake profile as sample.
Click on Report Profile
Click on Pretending to be Someone, then a friend if its for a friend or ME if its you.
After you will be asked to type the name of your friend if you are reporting for someone else.
This is the crucial part. DO NOT CLICK DONE. Instead, click on Report Profile.
Then click on the tickbox.
You should see this. This is when you have successfully reported a fake account. After, you can click done.
Why do you think there's an influx of fake accounts today?
