I don't use Twitter but I haven an account and have used it slightly in the past to stalk or follow the shuttle launches
so I still get the emails
in my inbox. I got one today from an ATS member I follow and I knew based on who it was it wasn't real. However many people would fall for it so I
thought I'd at least let those who use Twitter know about it if you didn't already.
This is what it usually says.
Hey this person (link tracking not allowed)/XXXxxx is spreading nasty rumors about you.
When I saw this and who it was from I laughed because I knew it was a scam.
I did do a search and if it's been posted well sorry. I just wanted those who didn't already know about it to know. I knew it had to be fake because
I knew the topic would make so many want to see who said what, ESP on social networking sites. It seems to be the one thing people get upset over
most, what is said to each other on social networking sites. I however don't fall for this stuff quite to easily. Probably cause i read too much ATS
Do not enter any of your information when it prompts. So many fall for that too when that is a pure sign of a scam! It looks like the site but it
isn't so as soon as you input your password you are screwed. I learned the hard way 10yrs ago, it sucked. I was one of those who clicked any link and
believed what it said, well not so much anymore.
Here is a link to the scam. Twitter Phishing
I know a lot of these go around all the social networking sites. I see a lot in my FB feed. I never click them and when I alert my
friends it's a scam they usually get all pissy at me. They should be thanking me for pointing out their gullibility! Anyone with a FB knows those
"friends" I'm talking about.
Anyway. If you use Twitter just be careful as with any social site online.
