Facebook doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-trekkie will need to dig through the advice provided by Facebook, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-trekkie can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-trekkie's own words
I recently friended someone on facebook, who turned out to be a scammer. Name on profile is: GRENDA LAURA*This person*s profile listed her as being a 'Promotions agent' for Samsung. Told me I had won $***,*** in a Samsung competition (which I did not enter!*. After questioning this person I became suspicious as the diction she used sounded foreign. When I questioned her about it she failed to answer anything after that. She listed a person as a fb friend on her profile who as it turns out, is not a friend at all. I have now blocked this person and tried (through the help of a real fb friend, Peter Byrne) to report her. Unfortunately, I didn't do it correctly, and inadvertently, reported my friend Peter Byrne instead. Please ignore my report about Peter Byrne, as I was trying to report this imposter, Grenda Laura. I am also going to report this scam to Samsung tomorrow (Monday **th December, ****). Can you please advise me what I should do about this imposter? Also, please disregard the report on my fb friend, Peter Byrne. Thank you. Lynne Maddern.
