Facebook cloning hoax: Users duped by viral message

A viral hoax is spreading across Facebook, prompting officials to warn against heeding the fake messages about cloned accounts.
The massive social hoax started when you, or someone you know, received a message from a Facebook friend saying they've received a friend request from you, WXYZ reports.
A Facebook official said: 'We've heard that some people are seeing posts or messages about accounts being cloned on Facebook.
"Occasionally Facebook accounts are cloned and the hackers will send your friends phishing emails to dupe them into clicking on a link that will infect them", Kelso explained. It then urges you to then forward on the message.
Users receive a message from a friend that says "Hi..."
Your account isn't sending duplicate friend requests. "Please DO NOT accept a 2nd friend request from "me". please forward to all your contacts".
Facebook cloning is when someone creates an account and steals your photos and personal information and then sends out friend requests to your existing friend list to gather more personal information, or to send out scam messages from the faked account. The company stresses that this is not related to last week's security breach.
You're simply doing it because the message tells you to. The message then instructs the user to "hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward..." However, Facebook told a local ABC News affiliate in Syracuse that it has not seen a rise in cloned accounts.
