Wow. This is really serious.
Most would agree that Facebook, at its best, is a networking resource, and at its worst, a way to successfully waste time, but now it appears that international drug rings are using it as a way to communicate with their couriers during smuggling operations!
Luvman Allison has been indicted by federal prosecutors in Brooklyn after he allegedly used Facebook to arrange the delivery of more than kilo of heroin through JFK Airport!
US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent James Holt revealed that Allison "explicitly discussed the methods he uses to covertly transport narcotics."
Meanwhile, officials in Malaysia have claimed that the social-networking site is also being used by international drug syndicates to recruit women as drug mules!
We sincerely hope that precautions can be put into place to ensure that this sort of thing stops, and immediately!
