Type of a scam Phishing

This was sent to my friend "Rusty Bucket" through his messenger and then he sent it to me, but I knew it was a scam. Something similar was mentioned on WAFB CHANNEL 9 this morning. This is a new scam going through messenger as of yesterday at 4:15pm when he sent it to me, but it was not him that sent it. I replied to him "not hardly because my brother died in 2005 during katrina. I told him to change his password because he had been hacked. Pretty smart for a 72 year old, don’t you think 🙂

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a messenger message from a friend. He told me to contact them and I sent them my name and email. They immediately sent me a video that I didn’t open and they called me using messenger. I looked them up on Facebook and there are many in this fraud. I believe they are located in Florida. African Americans in more than this one scam. They have many fund me pages using children and diseases such as cancer.
