Submission + - Fake Facebook Accounts Cost As Little As $0.06 (

jfruh writes: "Are you interested in buying a the kind of Facebook account a scammer dreams of — one with a of a pretty young woman as the profile pic? You can get them for as little as six cents apiece, if you buy in bulk. Of course, you pay for quality — to get a phone-verified account that an actual human has signed off on, you'd pay up to $1.50. The fact that anyone would be buying so many at a time points to the emergence of Facebook botnets. (And lest you think we're picking on Facebook, there are bots for sale for Google+, Craigslist, and other sites as well.)"
