I saw it for the first time late last week: an acquaintance from college posted something about how she had received a message about a friend receiving a friend request from her from a bogus account that the friend in question supposedly ignored, but she should “check her account.” It also recommends forwarding the message to everyone you know and provides instructions on how to do so.
While that is certainly a thing that happens on Facebook, there’s a solid chance that what you’re getting is just the same message your friend received, forwarded to everyone on their friend list. A message they lik received from another friend that did the same thing.
