Fake social media accounts are frequently used to cause harm to people. These accounts are operated to:
- Conceal the individual’s identity while transmitting bullying or intimidating messages.
- Impersonate their victim to break their reputation or disturb them.
- Trick their friends and family into joining with a profile imitating the victim to trick them into employing malicious content.
This common type of cyberbullying can cause significant distress to the victim and harm their online reputation. It is required to take an appropriate step as soon as possible.
