SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 8: Several Facebook users have reported their accounts were cloned after they received a duplicate friend request message asking them to forward the message to friends.
The hoax message went viral on Sunday, saying the sender had received a duplicate friend request from the recipient.
"Hi I actually got another friend request from you yesterday...which I ignored so you may want to check your account. Hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward and all the people you want to forward too. I had to do the people individually. Good Luck!" read the message.
According to a Time report, Facebook users were being duped into thinking that their accounts have been cloned. - IANS
