I was contacted by a lady named Evelyn Jarad and she gave me the same spiel.  I printed out the cert but they have not ask for any money.  She gave me a website where I could contact Mark Zukerberg but I am sure it is also a scam. I wonder if Mr. Zukerburg knows that this is going on and why cant someone stop them.  Ms. Jarad has a facebook page and even her picture (if it is real).  I will not send them anything.  I am going to notify my Facebook friends about this and hope everyone else does also.  How are we suppose to know if some legitimate is coming from Facebook?

PEOPLE, wake up! First of all the e-mail addresses are not @facebook.com and yet these people claim they work there! Second, most of the times their English is poor, there are mistakes, unadequate word arrangement etc. Most of them are from Africa actually. Anyway, don't give them real personal info, get their phone number, give it to the authorities and may be let them call you couple of times, so at least they waste their money and time while you are having fun!

I got this scam saying I could win money but I had to send $1000 for ups to get it

they said I could send half when I questioned them and I could pay the rest when it was delivered.  I sent the $500 by money gram.  Now they say that I have to pay the rest before I can get the money.

Is there anything I can do now

Another Scam. They are getting imaginative by hacking s friend's Facebook account to encourage you to go ahead with supposed Lottery claim. They wanted $1000 delivery, etc. This one had a madeup name of David Hurry. I am in Australia. Julie

ok that I exactly what I received and at the time after researching all the names and , seeing that they were all real members of the facebook  board of excutives I went ahead and sent in my information and I even called the number attached to the names of ..mark and phil , only to be told that I was a winner  and that information would be sent to me on how to collect my money . what I received was a text telling  me that a man had contacted facebook regarding my money and that he was in charge of handleing my winnings this man  supplied a bank and routing number and I was asked if he was truly in charge because facebook didn't want to be responsible to sending the money to wrong person if he did not indeed represent us . and that is currently where I stand .....what actions should I take now at this point , just drop it and move on or report the scam to facebook or laugh it off as a big foolish joke ?

I received one yesterday for the Facebook Lottery 13 with it going to Sandra Sides In Mount Rocky, North Carolina and they are asking me for 160 dollars.  Is this a scam or is it real.  They advertise that ups will deliver it to me after I send them 110 dollars.  Can you please tell me if this is true or just another scam?

I received a notice saying I won a lottery of $600,000.00 from a facebook promo lottery. They sent it in an email address I do not use on facebook so I was suspicious right away. They provided a lucky number, a ticket number, a batch number and a serial number. They mentioned the FBI and that some 216 scam artists have been arrested; That this was real and legal. This made me suspicious as well. They asked me to provide my name, address, phone number occupation, marital status, sex, age, nationality, country and email address. I did not respond.

@TeresaTillman   I lost $250 this way.  They pose as a friend on FB and tell you they won money, and they saw your name on the driver's sheet...and you may be a winner too, that you need to talk to so and so...and presto!  Then the guy appears online, you are asked to befriend him, you do, and he starts in with his smooth talk.    Do NOT give these creeps any money.
