It's not quite the same but I noticed a friend's Facebook page had up a sad post about how she needed help because her father had just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and she needed money. It directed you to a "go fund me" page. I knew her father didn't have Alzheimer's and I knew she hadn't set up a go fund me page. She had been hacked. Luckily we all knew that so no money was sent and she was able to shut down her account and put up a new one. So that scam is happening. She reported it to "go fund me" as well who shut down that account from whoever set it up.
