Jayden K. Smith
Please Stop Forwarding the Warnings!
By now if you live on the planet earth, and have a Facebook page, you have received this message,
“Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept Jayden K. Smith friendship request. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. Forwarded as received. Hold your finger down on the message. At the bottom in the middle it will say forward. Hit that then click on the names of those in your list and it will send to them.”
Some people got up to 100 messages a day with this warning, But folks, calm down, stop hitting the forward button. This is a scam, a hoax, an annoying chain letter that does nothing but clog up our inboxes.
We have tried to find out who started this hoax, but so far haven’t been able to find any credible source.
Don’t believe us? Well read the following articles:
- CBS News: Who is Jayden K. Smith? Stop sharing this viral Facebook message
- USA Today: Ignore those Facebook messages about Jayden K. Smith
- The Telegraph: Jayden K Smith: Why you should ignore this Facebook hacker hoax
- Mashable: That Jayden K. Smith ‘hack’ is actually a hoax, and we should have seen this all along
- Mercury News: Facebook friends fall for Jayden K. Smith hoax
But, some very funny Tweets have come out of it.
It’s now being reported that Jayden K. Smith met with Donald J. Trump in the library of Mar-a-Lago, with Colonel Mustard and a candlestick.

I am proud to announce Jayden K Smith as the new head of cyber security. He will be working with the Russians and maybe North Korea. #MAGA
