Facebook Scam

Got a friend request from someone I was already friends with.

Then this person starts messaging me.  Asks if I had heard the good news.

Proceeds to tell me she had won a prize from Facebook consisting of a new apple laptop and $100,000.  Says she has received hers and saw my name on the winners list.  Asks if I had received mine yet.  Of course I say no.  Then tells me I need to contact the agent in charge of delivering the prizes.

At this point I cut it off…..the next thing would have been contact info for the alledged “agent” and upon contacting this person I would have been required to provide personal information for the purpose I’m assuming identity theft.
