Mass cloning scams have occurred recently, as in the summer of 2016, but Facebook officials told WSYR that this most recent viral message does not reflect an actual epidemic of cloned accounts, nor is it related to the data breach that occurred in September. "I actually got another friend request from you yesterday...which I ignored so you may want to check your account..." Nothing. Delete the message and move on. "And you're just making it worse", the Facebook post read. As of now, ignore the "Got Another Friend Request from You" message.
