Warning: Officials warn Facebook users about hoax messages


Have you been getting annoying facebook messages in your inbox? Well you can ignore them according to Plaquemines Parish office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. 

They say there was a cloning epidemic on Facebook about 18 months ago which was real, and some people do still get hacked. However, this message is different.

The message begins with “Hi… I actually got another friend request from you yesterday which I ignored so you may want to check your account.”

It then instructs you to hold your finger down and forward the message.

Officials in Plaquemines parish are urging people to stop forwarding the message about being hacked
