I DO, TOO, HAVE FRIENDS!! ....I just don't know who they are. *lol*

My apologies to Eldon. Got pretty far off the original topic. I was getting this post confused with another one.

Usually when they hack an account there is little to no information in their profile, this guy had lots of friends and pictures.....looked like a legitimate acct to me.


Because they alias a legit account. Another "door" into a lefgit account, if you will. So they can do what they want in the name of that account, and when you look you see the legit info. They get the best of both worlds. But it is simply part of modern living and none of us has the way to stop it, so we deal with it.

I don't understand why all bussiness and goverment agencys have to use FACEbook to put out their information whem people like me have no idea how to find that. Would be nice to be able to find about school closings and the like but no way to do it.

(quoted from post at 22:48:58 01/10/19) Eldon do you know how easy it is to get a bunch of friends on FB. I have an account. Don't know why. My ids talked me into it. Heck of a thing for an anti social person to be on a social media page ain't it? Anyway I bet I look at FB once or twice a month. Get a bunch of friends request everyday that I never respond to. I could have 1000s of FB friends if I wanted. Make a few posts about what I'm doing and it looks legit.

Heck man there are scams everywhere.

You are quite the expert on something you never use...gotta love people like you that have to comment on everything, even when they are clueless....




Heck you are old enough to remember when the cops use to call that type of activity a "confidence" game? Been the way people have been scammed for generations. A crook gains your confidence by lying and gets your money. Can be done via mail, phone or through social media on the computer. Heck it can be done with a news paper ad and a few phone calls. Here is the big point. The person always looking for the "fantastic deal", wanting something for nothing are the ones who most easily fall for the scams. Now don't take that wrong like you did my original post which was meant to highlight that even a FB dummy like myself can see how a scammer can use it. There is nothing wrong with trying to get a good deal but today you really have to be on your guard. Lot of people out there willing to take your money.

As far as your nasty comment?

1: I really don't care what you think. Attacking me while hiding behind your computer shows your true nature.

2: Unlike you i can read and educate myself. And I've read a lot about FB. I can also use common sense. I also see all the friends request I get from people I don't know. All I have to do is click accept and i have a new friend, don't matter that I don't know them. Then I can think too. You made your statement in the original post. About how this person had friends and some posts about different things. So think. If you were inclined to try to scam someone via FB how would you gain their confidence?

We all know your type, too...rarely start a post, but are eager to give your opinion no matter how valid...then always have to have the last word bashing along the way. Yes, you are the expert on everything, including judging people on the internet...

Well at least my judgment was dead on about you.

I didn't start the bashing there bud, you did! All I did was point out that a FB dummy like me with about 3 seconds of thought can figure out how to look legit so I can run a scam. I don't have to hijack someones account. Apparently someone showing you that thinking is possible threatens you. So you get insulting. When someone insults you yer really hurt Laughing Laughing !

You don't want someone commenting don't post. Pretty simple isn't it!

You are a negative person...most of your posts reflect it. You may think it makes you look smart, but most of us can see what your problem is...

I'm negative? There you go, trying to insult yet again. All I did was tell you someone can easily make a FB account look legit to scam people and you have to start trying to insult people. I'd really like to know what brings on this type of behavior? Is it that your head is lodged firmly in your 3rd point of contact?

You forget that most of us live in the US and we can have a difference of opinion. On an open forum like this it's fair game for anyone to comment too.

So if you have a problem with me send me an email, maybe we can talk this out. Or we can keep this up too, makes little difference to me.

You mean face book where folks post about what they ate, where they went, pix of their pets, pix of their meals, gripe about vehicles that won't run, show off new stuff they bought, get in mouth battles and complain about family?

That kind of social media? Hmmmmmmmmmmm.


Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, kinda like tractor tales forum....oops LOL!
