Why Is My Account Hacked?
This is a FAQ in the minds of victims of such circumstance. Facbook Accounts are being hacked for so many reasons including these major ones:
1. Stealing of Personal Details
3. Being Noticed As a Fraudster.
1. Stealing of Personal Details:
Many Facebook accounts are being hacked for this very reason, that is why i advice every one who is frequently sending confidential details through Facebook message to delete immediately received. Because if a hacker succeeds in hacking your account and sees confidential details like cards number, Bank Verification Number (BVN) and some other vital details, and you would not only suffer the lost of hacked account but you might even lost your account balance to Zero.
I have been a victim of this when my Account was hacked ones and the hacker begins to plead with my Facebook friends to support him with finance for a surgery and some of my friends began to give me calls thinking it was me…but thank God i succeeded in recovering it because he only changed my password then.
3. Being Noticed as a Fraudster:
This is similar to the number two above but here the Fraudsters are not even looking for your details, their major target is not to be caught by Facebook Team so they look for a Facebook account up-to Three and Half years old so that Facebook would not block them easily while they carry out their
activities as Facebook users.
