  1. Why not share the subject’s FB name used and/or photo, if there was one? Someone may recognize yhe name or face – or there may be other victims who have his info, as well

  2. People are trolling FB and eBay all the time for victims. Do not engage with these people. Do not use FB or eBay to sell stuff.
