Facebook Scam
Police Departments are warning facebook users to be aware of some of the posts you comment on.
The post that asks "what was your favorite teacher's name or who was your first grade teacher, who was your childhood best friend, your first car etc. These are the same questions asked when setting up accounts as security questions. When answering these questions and posting them, you are giving out answers to your security questions without realizing it. Hackers are setting these up as a "get to know each other better" game on Facebook. They then build a profile of you and use this information to hack accounts or open new lines of credit in your name.

Not all of these on Facebook are scams, whoever it is best to remain vigilant and refrain from participating in such activities as there is no way to tell which ones may have been create by scammers.
