Facebook issues or scammers

Working hard to get things done tonight, and decided to finish off with Facebook.

Upon opening my FB page for my website I went through the list of friends to be added and obligingly just went click, click, click and thought to myself I shouldn't have added that one.


Within seconds I had 11 new friend requests, all friends of the "so called person" I had just added.


So I thought I would get some pictures of the faces shown, most of poor quality, or too distant to see the person etc etc.

Ihave included some of them in the header file.


I deleted all of these, marked them as spam and will be more careful.

There is no fun with FB

Because I've been in the industry so long, I have a lot of friends that others would love to access. I get those requests all the time. They are indeed a pain.

We all have friends we need to protect, one brief slip up can cause all sorts of problems

Hi Steve,

I made a mistake of posting in an open FB group... During the last two days, I received over 300 friend requests, mostly from men. Some profiles are obvious scam, others are not so obvious, and yet a few requests are from people I'd like to connect with. So, I spent hours sorting them out... Those who are not obvious, I accept, and when they try private message me or even call, I have to go back to "unfriend" and "block" them. What a waste of time! :(

I thought those stalkers and scammers are only after females, but you got some too, eh?!

... I just sent you FB friend request :)

Hi Julia,

All I wanted to do was tidy up some settings in FB which was in essence a 5 minute job before I went to bed, an hour later and I was finishing off this post.

Nothing like a 5 minute job these days is there.

Thanks for the FB request, I will get to it later on today.

I'm just starting to work FB properly according to Gogetter training. It's good to read your experience at this point. Thanks!

SO glad to help!

Don't close your Facebook account! You have not added Kyle yet.

So true!

Good move Steve.

Thanx

Thank you. I will be careful.

It is funny really, it is when you decided to NOT do your normal checking that things go wrong.

I am getting to the point of closing my FaceBook Account. FB needs to clean up their act and start screening out all the scammy ads.

Yeah, I know, it is beginning, sorry, it began deteriorating a while ago.

Thank you for the reminder!

Glad you were able to delete them before they caused any harm.

Lydia

We do need to act fast at times!
