Facebook Phishing – Part Deux

And the plot thickens…

The day after my wife’s Facebook account got hacked (see previous entry), we scrambled to protect ourselves on all of our other accounts across the virtual world.  And being the good internet citizen, I reported the problem to Facebook security.

What is the thanks I get for this?  They disable MY Facebook account with no explanation.  I received an email that said my account had been compromised and that I should change the password.  Oh, and I should reply to their email with my security word in the email.  Now that is just plain wrong.  I have NEVER heard of entering a security word into an email.  This looks like an email from the hacker.

So again, I sent a copy of this to Facebook security.

No reply.  The big Facebook wall.  Now I know why they call it a “wall” on Facebook.  Because it is just a big computer.  There are no people there to take care of actual problems.  I’m not sure I should be into this anymore, but I’m kind of addicted at this point.  I keep up with a lot of my friends this way.  It’s a conundrum.

I have a wide range of interests, but not a great deal of depth in any of them. So here I share just a smattering of my random thoughts, mostly for my own amusement.
