Fortunately, Facebook has rigorous standards for people opening accounts, so it's completely impossible for someone to, say, set up a fake account one day, use it to scam people, then set up another fake account the next day.

Thank goodness for Facebook.

It's a great mystery. I've never seen a page like this, but I guess we travel in different circles.
