Over the past few months, researchers with Cisco’s Talos security group compiled a list of 74 Facebook groups whose members promised to carry out a variety of unethical, if not outright illegal, activities. According to the Talos report: These Facebook groups are quite easy to locate for anyone possessing a Facebook account. Facebook seems to rely on users to report these groups for illegal and illicit activities to curb any abuse. Eventually, through contact with Facebook’s security team, the majority of malicious groups was quickly taken down, however new groups continue to pop up, and some are still active as of the date of publishing. A screenshot from one group shows a Facebook user peddling credit card data for as little as $7. The employees also identified the users running the deleted groups and blocked their ability to create new groups on Facebook in the future.

How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
