Cleaning up fake profiles on Facebook

When you get friend requests from fake profiles on Facebook, you need to do this to help stop the spammers / scammers / phishers from suckering other people. Open the profile of the friend request. Click the 3 dots next to the ‘message’ button. Choose "Report". Choose "Report this profile", and click Continue. Choose "This is a fake account", and click Continue. Click "Submit to Facebook for Review", then click Done. At the top of the page, click "Delete Request", then click "Mark as Spam".
