Creating a beliveable account

Social engineering is the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery for information gathering or computer system access and in most cases the attacker never comes face-to-face with the victim.

Mind you, if anyone suspects your account to be fake they can report it from which FB will suspend and request a measure to verify the identity. I had an experience involving trolling of certain fans of a major cell phone carrier and one of them had some self esteem issues. FB doesn't do too much to validate the ID though, for whatever its worth...

Edit: Great. OP from 2012... ffs.

I was right, this topic lives on and on. Mods, can we close this one?

To any possible posters: do not reply, this topic is dead.

I know the OP's answer was probably already answered, or they are gone now. Why does that call for this thread to be closed? The title is very catchy and this can be a big part in a Social Engineering attack. The OP probably has the details he wants, but why should that call for the discontinuation of future posts? There isn't one solution to this questions and it may possibly change more over some given time.
If posting on this thread is still regarded as 'grave digging', I give my apologies. Please feel free remove my post in the given case. I just wish to express my thoughts and to grasp an idea about what this forum's general perspective is.

Threads usually aren't closed here, but necro posting on a thread without adding anything useful is frowned upon. If you have anything useful to add, by all means, share it. Better yet, create a new thread and post it there. Besides, this is getting more off-topic by the post and doesn't add anything.

Even this:

say you just made an account this morning, you could post a bunch of times and set the times way back or something...

while interesting, is off-topic.

This is the correct response.
