Ready to dump Facebook now?

Data from a Facebook breach that’s several years old has now shown up online for FREE on a low-level hacking forum.

Security researchers say hackers could use the data to impersonate people and commit fraud”.

If you have a Facebook account, please be on the look-out for phone scams and people attempting to social engineer their way into your bank accounts or credit cards.
