The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says Nigerians can report their hacked facebook accounts to the commission so as to avoid people being defrauded through the accounts.
The agency posted this details on its official Instagram account on Wednesday, odunews.com can confirm.
Below is the guideline to follow:
“Reporting a Hacked Facebook Account
“Before contacting the EFCC to report about your hacked Facebook account, ensure you’ve followed these steps:
“1. Try changing your password
“2. If you are unable to do that, inform your family and friends about the compromise on your account
“3. Report the hacked account to Facebook (the EFCC cannot take down your Facebook account) by: asking your contacts to report the hacked profile or create a new profile and report the old account
By so doing, the scammer will not be able to defraud anyone using your profile.
“PS: Be weary of people chatting you up about investing in businesses unknown to you. Always contact your family or friends in situations that seem suspicious.
“Do not be greedy. Most people are defrauded as a result of greed.
The #EFCC cares about you. Social media has its advantages and disadvantages so ensure that you #StaySafe.”
