Subject: Tech: Facebook Hacking???
From: Joe Offer
Date: 01 May 14 - 09:53 PM

A Mudcatter posted a message on my Facebook wall saying "Hi, Joe, how's things?" Well, things is good. But I got a similar message from another friend and she says she didn't send it. So, I'm wondering if the Mudcatter's Facebook account has been hijacked.

Has anybody encountered this? How do you handle it?

I replied to the Mudcatter by e-mail, not my Facebook.

This happened to at least two of my friends. Someone takes out an account pretending to be them. The person they're spoofing likely hasn't set privacy settings so only friends can see their friends, or gets access some other way. They then contact those friends and request friendship.

If I'm one of the people they want to friend, I notice someone who's already my friend wants to be my friend, and post a message on the real person's wall letting them AND their friends know. Then I report the fake friend and block them. The person who's targeted also needs to tell Facebook in order to get the fake account removed, and it doesn't hurt if other of their friends report them.

Then again, I only see one "How's things" message on your wall, so maybe Facebook already zapped the fake? If that's the only message and the one you're talking about, the person should change her password.

It happens.

Over the course of the last decade someone "Joe Offer" has attempted to "friend" on four of my accounts....
