Hoax virus rumor about Donald Trump's health; "young people will win" find imposters trying to sell things with fake accounts

I’ve gotten messages on Facebook warning me of pictures online showing Trump collapsing from a stroke, as email attachments.
Fact-checking site Snopes says this is a hoax.

However it’s obvious that you shouldn’t open an attachment from an email (Of uncertain source) purporting to have a politically provocative image (like “Baby Trump”) or document.

The “plaid shirt guy” Tyler Linfesty advises everyone that his ID has been spoofed by people trying to sell things.  If you get an email or see a post from anyone of the “young people will win” crowd trying to sell products, it’s a fake account.
