Human filth using my dead mom's hacked fb account to send spam

My mother died a little less than a year ago due to aggressive cancer.

When she was first diagnosed the doctors said she had 3 weeks to live.

I hurried to shift my work schedule and make arrangements for the 600 mile trip to see her.

However, 3 days later she was gone.

My mom told me she had left a letter behind for each of her 4 boys upon the event of her death.

Those letters never turned up.

So today when I saw an e-mail from my mom I thought, here it is- it's my letter.

It was not.

Is this something for the FBI ?

I doubt this is for the FBI, but you may want to inform Facebook about this. I have several friends that passed over a year ago and they are still on my friends list with 'active' accounts, so......FB should have a protocol for dealing with this.

Condolences on losing your mother.

Using your Mom's death to sell you stuff...
That's just wrong on so many levels.

I'd be getting in contact with him and have 2 questions...
"Who the fu** are you?" and Why are using my Mom's pic ?"

Actually, there'd probably be a 3rd...."How hard do think it's gonna be to get this size 10 boot outta your ass?"

probably not an fbi thing but a personal life lesson, never put anything important or anything that you care about on the internet. go old school, write it on paper and stick in a drawer somewhere.

That's gotta be somebody spoofing his e-mail address.

That's terrible. I know exactly what you feel here, because the same thing (not facebook) happened to my wife and I when a love one passed.

Just awful.

If you do report this to facebook, they will delete the account. So capture what you want to preserve before you report it.

My mom died a few months ago. I don't have FB, but my sisters do. They told me the other day that often it shows that she liked something on there. A picture or a product. I thought it was pretty sick, using a dead person to try and get people to buy your stuff. Then I wondered how many other things they falsely claimed someone liked that you knew.

I don't know too much about FB, but I do know my mom isn't capable of clicking the "like" button anymore.

Sorry you had to go through that. I would be out of my mind about it personally. Glad I don't have FB....

That is utterly terrible.

I am pretty certain that there must be some kind of law against this particular application of the hackers talent. I hope the individual responsible has a terrible life.

Unconscionable and cruel. Anybody would find this so distressing. How can this be prevented? Maybe a way to impose huge fines for these behaviors?

Yeah... Been getting it from my wife and some friends I know are not alive...

There's been hacks in recent years of 100's of MILLIONS of accts.. so this will be the norm from now on... Bastards.

Firstly my condolences to you and your family. May your mom rest in peace.

Secondly it could a spam bot. Unless your mom left info about getting into her fb account I don't believe it was hacked. More like a scam of some sort.
