"You can stop forwarding that latest warning from your Facebook friends about being hacked".

The message instructs users to forward the message to friends, but officials say by doing so, you're only making it worse.

"However, at risk of stating the obvious, sending a second friend request warning is only helpful if you have received a second friend request from someone".

Basically, people are being duped into thinking their accounts have been "cloned".

A Facebook message that is actually a hoax has now gone viral.

Facebook cloning is when someone creates an account and steals your photos and personal information and then sends out friend requests to your existing friend list to gather more personal information, or to send out scam messages from the faked account. "Your picture and your name are used to create a new face book account (they don't need your password to do this this)", the message reads in part. I have NO plans to open a new account. The company stresses that this is not related to last week's security breach.

"Hi ... I actually got another friend request from you yesterday ... which I ignored so you may want to check your account", the message says. If it has, report the profile to Facebook.

Then it tells you to "hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward...."

You can also choose 3 to 5 friends that you can contact if you are locked out of your account, which offers an easy way for you to get your access back.
