No I Didn't Die........FACEBOOK just killed me.

Incase anyone wondered why I disappeared from your
Facebook page.....
While away for the holidays
Harvey who I went to high school with.....
received an E-Mail from "ME" saying I had been robbed at gunpoint while on
Vacation in London and the message asked poor Harvey to wire
$850.......ASAP.
Needless to say I never left the country and someone found the need to not only
Steal my E-Mail address but then delete my Facebook account
Making me Disappear.....
Not Very Nice......don't you think?

That is awful! I received one of those emails about a year ago, from a "friend" and of course when I contacted that real friend they had no idea they had been taken over!

That's horrible. I got rid of FB a few weeks after I signed up for it. Too many weird things.
Glad you're back though..missed ya.

Are you home now (even though Facebook killed you off)? Other than that - how was your trip? Not much going on around here! Sally

Jojo said...

Are you kidding me??? That is awful, Sue! They were doing this on the blogs, and I received a message about a good friend. I knew to email her, and she had her account hacked.

I'm so sorry you're dead. I hope like Lazzarus, you come roaring back. Seems you have, but we miss you in Blogville!

xO,

Sheila :-)

I have heard of this happening to others on FB. Glad to know you are OK and home?? WE have missed you!

Oh no Sue! That happened to my daughter-in-law once. She thinks it was a phony game application that stole her password on facebook. I never play games or accept "gift" tokens on facebook for that reason.

Just to be safe change all your passwords.

I was wondering where you were! I have heard some real horror stories about Facebook. People give out way too much info without realizing!
I don't do FB, enough strange things in my life already! :)

Donna said...

Uh oh. So sorry that happened, Sue.

Just this morning someone wrote something on my personal wall and when I clicked on it, it was in some strange language. Needless to say I changed my passwords on facebook and my email.
