Got a friend request from a stranger today. See image below. Note it says the person works at "Facebook and has the official title of "Facebook Online Lottery Claiming Agent." Hmm. I didn't know FB ran a lottery but who knows? One of the founders of twitter just donated 1/3rd of their stock to the employees. It wouldn't surprise me if they did, but I doubt it. I checked Google. There is a whole slew of references to the Facebook Lottery scam. So, if a strange asked to be friends on Facebook and they claim to an agent of the Facebook Lottery, just delete / report it to Facebook.
