security forces and civilians. >> holly, you were in raqqa in syria which is the de facto isis capital. what's the status of the fighting there? >> well, anthony, u.s.-backed syrian forces now have isis surrounded in raqqa. but when weep were there on the outskirts of the city just over a week ago, those u.s. backed forces looked to us to be overstretched, they seemed to have very few fighters on the front line. and indeed at around the same time, isis apparently retook a neighborhood from them. so the fight for raqqa may be just as challenging as mosul even though the city is a fraction of the size. >> holly williams in istanbul tonight. thank you, holly. >> still ahead, a close call at the airport in san francisco. and, a star is born at a cold play concert.

2:43 am
there are no conflicts of interest. >> scams cost americans more than $50 billion each year. and more than half of the victims say they were first contacted online. anna werner has the story of one scam working its way through facebook. she is at the company's menlo park headquarters. >> you may think you wouldn't fall for a scam on facebook. experts say more and more people. including millenials are victims here. this scam raise a question, what happens when you think a person is a face book friend turns out to be some one else. i wouldn't wish this on an enemy. >> shelley drummond reaction to face book. started when she found a profile for a friend from years back, deborah boyd. >> i was on messenger. my friend's name came up. >> soon her friend boyd was telling her about a so-called government grant she had gotten through an agent on facebook. sure enough, the agent then told
2:44 am
drummond she could get financial assistance from the government. all she had to do was provide personal information then send $1,500 in fees to get up to $100,000 in grant money. >> the person that i was corresponding with that i thought was my friend had vouched for this foundation. and i believed her. >> so, drummond wired the $1,500 to florida then waited for the delivery driver like the one shown on facebook to deliver her $100,000 in cash. but -- >> they never game. >> when she tracked down her friend boyd by phone. >> i said, shelley wasn't me. you got scammed. >> turns out, boyd's facebook ask the had been hacked by scammers who locked her out then quickly reached out to try to con her family and friend. who she then had to warn -- >> please do not send them anything. and delete yourself off of that page. because it is not me. >> emma fletcher is with the better business
2:45 am
>> they're basically capturing that trust, you have in this person. and using it for their own gain. >> so, we wondered, were the scammers still active? to find out, we set up our own fake account on facebook and contacted boyd's impostor. sure enough, she claimed she got a $50,000 grant, and said we could get one too. it wasn't a loan. an we want have to pay it back. >> she is not wasting any time. >> something we showed fletcher as the the conversation progressed. >> is that typical of what you see happening. >> once you show an interest, you know, they're going to go in for the kill. >> and it wasn't just the fake deborah boyd account. we found what appears to be a network of fake face book profiles offering grants. from $50,000 to $1 million. all while assuring us it wasn't a scam. swear to god one said. but those photos of the agents, a quick search using google images turned up the truth.
2:46 am
but those people don't offer grants. one is a real estate agent from vermont. the other -- a professor at mit. >> so if those aren't the real people, who is really running those facebook accounts. >> what this website its, is a -- ip tracker. >> meet computer expert. gary moleski, he set up a we to track the location. he built the page that looks like a money transfer company website. but really find a computer's unique identifier and location. >> so when they click the link think they're going to a money transfer website. they're allowing us to track them. >> we got the scammers to click on it. lo and behold. >> there we are. now in nigeria. >> right. the scammers are in niep jeer yeah. >> russians use malware, chinese use malware. nigerians use social engineering and social media. >> if we were able to track them what about
2:47 am
dedicated team helping to detect and block these kinds of scams. and as developed several techniques to stop the abuse. but boyd told us, facebook hasn't solved her problem. and the scammers have a fake profile up with her name. >> these people should not still be contacting my friend and family. no way should they be, this is what. six months later. nine months later. come on. >> after we reached out to facebook and provided them with the urls for the scam accounts, it appears they did block those accounts, but, deborah boyd tells us she has never been able to get back into her old account which has a lot of family photos and memories she would look to have back. by the way the two people we showed whose photos were used for the scam on face book, one declined to comment but the other told us, she was shocked by what she saw. she had no idea that her own photo had been taken off her own website and used by fraudster for a scam.

2:54 am
>> so why isn't this active authentication active yet? >> it could drain our batteries too quickly or fail to work in certain settings, for example the camera can't see you in the dark. method like tracking our pattern of life could turn off users. >> once you have this information, you can sort of learn where the person will end up in the afternoon. or at night. >> to a lot of people this is going to look creepy? >> that's right. it is creepy. but it is very, very powerful. >> what guarantees me that some body is not using my, biometric data to do surveillance on me? >> joseph at tick helped invent facial recognition technology 25 years ago but tracking users is valuable to marketers that tech companies can't be trusted to self regulate. >> you broke my password. change it. >> can't change your face. >> can't change my face. fingerprints. i need a mechanism to protect me. >> that mechanism would be a guarantee that all of the
