No, your Facebook account hasn't been cloned

No, your Facebook account hasn't been cloned

The scam message reads: 'Hi.I actually got another friend request from you yesterday.which I ignored so you may want to check your account.

Facebook says you can ignore the messages and delete.

The office says to not do what it says and to simply ignore the message.

Melania Trump raises eyebrows in Africa with another white hat

Facebook is warning its users about a viral hoax that's been hitting accounts worldwide.

Facebook recently shut down "Lifestage", its standalone social networking app that it released a year ago for high schoolers.

You can easily check to see if your account has been cloned by just searching your name on Facebook. They're a hoax. Do not believe or fall for them. "And you certainly should check it out so that you can take action to protect yourself and your friends if your account really has been cloned", he wrote.

You can also do a quick search on Facebook of your name to see if there are any secondary Facebook accounts with your name.
