Facebook Fakes

I got a Facebook "Friend Request" today from an obvious fake account claiming to be "Brooke Shields". Immediately reported it to Facebook, and blocked it. Got a confirmation from them a bit later that they had removed the account because it violated their terms of service.

So far, whomever made the fake account and sent the "Friend Request", has done it TWO more times, using the exact same profile photos and about 4 posts, all made today. Each time, I've reported and blocked, and got confirmation the profile has been removed. One of the times, a guy that follows another Facebook friend of mine apparently accepted the Friend Request, since he was the only one that appeared in the fake "Brooke Shields" Friend list. Hopefully he'll figure out it was fake.

Easy to tell when there is a fake celebrity account. No friends, only a few posts made the day the friend request was sent, and no blue verification check-mark next to the name.
