Facebook Phishing

This is from the bizarro file.  This morning I was wasting my usual amount of time on Facebook when the chat window popped up from my spousal unit.  This is interesting for a number of reasons:  she rarely gets on Facebook, she is currently out of town playing golf, and she never calls me by my first name (which “she” did in the chat window).  I simply couldn’t imagine her standing on a tee box at the 10th tee musing “I wonder what my PK is doing at home?  I’ll use Facebook to find out!”  Like I said, she doesn’t use Facebook at home, much less on her Blackberry.  So I called the bluff of the phisher:

Spouse:

Hey PK

8:28amPK

hi

what are you doing on FB?

8:29amSpouse

we are in need of help that why came on here for help

not good at the moment

8:30amPK

call me

8:30amSpouse

ouch all cell phone as being stolen away from us by the robbers

8:31amSpouse

we have being in big shit in London by the robbers

Would have been funny if it wasn’t scary.  So this morning has been about shutting down the Facebook account and protecting ourselves in other ways.  So if you are on Facebook, beware.  The phishers are lurking.
