Deepfake Phishing (jefftk.com)

A post about what seems to have been a pretty impressive Facebook phishing attack using (kinda) live deepfake video of one of the poster's friends.

Though it's possible that instead of a deepfake it was just a recording, from the attacker calling the friend?

If that's the case, the attacker convinced the victim's friend to turn on their video for a call just to get the video to use as bait. That's still pretty sophisticated...

I think that happens by default if you accept a call on FB Messenger?
