The agency wrote: ”Reporting a Hacked Facebook Account

“Before contacting the EFCC to report about your hacked Facebook account, ensure you’ve followed these steps: Try changing your password

“If you are unable to do that, inform your family and friends about the compromise on your account.

“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 wary 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.”
