Scam alert pixabay imageScam Alert! No Facebook Will NOT Become Chargeable After Jan. 7, 2017

by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe

Some caring folks alerted me to this Facebook scam today. Did you receive this too?

"From Saturday morning facebook will become chargeable. If you have at least 10 contacts send them this message. In this way we will see that you are an avid user and your logo will become blue (ūüĒĶ) and will remain free. (As discussed in the paper today. Facebook will cost 0.01ps per message. Send this message to 10 people. When you do the light will turn blue otherwiswe facebook will activate billing."

 
Good news, friends and colleagues, this is apparently a hoax, so you will not have your Facebook account become chargeable. I found this listed as a scam from Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/help/community/question/?id=1335211983196036.  Facebook image
 
Also found it listed as a scam at

Oh, that's funny;  imagine if they started charging?  Everyone would flee.

There is no shortage of scams out there, is there?

Michelle, I missed this.  If the spammers put their smarts into making an honest living, they could probably make a lot more money.
