Kyle, I forward your name to someone in Africa who has a lot of money and willing to give it to you. Just send them your Bank account number.

It must be a sign of the season, because I just got one of those "name your price" email messages.

When I first got the email, I will admit, I almost emailed him directly to find out if it was for real.
But then I thought, well obviously they going to say yes it is real, send the money. Smile

So for a few minutes I didn't know what to think, then I came here and PM'ed him.

Anyway, glad it worked out.

Every morning Kelly makes a facebook post telling us what she plans to do that day, and she would have told us about traveling abroad during the busyest time of the year.

That's the first thing I thought of too Al. They sure picked the wrong couple to hack. If anyone is facebook friends with Kyle and Kelly they would know what their plans and they certainly did not include a trip out of the country.

So, I guess one thing that Kyle's Red Jacket of Mystery can't do, is prevent email hackers. Even the jacket has a Kryptonite.

I don't know enough about the computer stuff to really talk about it. But they say you have to be very careful with the app's on facebook.

Saw a story on the news last night where hacking phones was big now. That too is done by downloading apps.

Yeah it certainly wasn't any fun at all. But, we were able to handle it as beast as we could and spent most of yesterday cleaning up the mess the hacker caused.

It is really scarey cause this honestly is the closest and most legit scam I have seen in a while. Most are totally a joke. this one they actually thought out a bit more.

Trust me, if we ever were going away overseas, people would know about it. lol

Not sure how the email accounts were retrieved but they got them through Facebook. That much I do know. This scam/hack is actually pretty involved. I am really amazed at to what length they went to.

When you click on items that you are unfamiliar or items that request APPS, then that app seals your friends list and sends them to each one.



For instance "Kyle Peron just answered a question about Dennis Michael!" and my curiosity to see what question Kyle answered would give out my friends list and perpetuate the spam.

THE SAME FOR JOKES AND PICTURES. Not all only a few do this. I turned off all apps and "news links" and "friends of friends" just to minimize the potential for spam on facebook.

I also report any spam I get and that does seem to work.

I just got an email from http://www.magic-voitko.com on a bar chair suspension. Since it is overseas, I got a warning of potential Phishing and gave me the option to by-pass the warning. Since I know the website I by-passed it and saw the new barstool levitation that was flagged as spam.

Also AOL flags lots of BCC and CC emails.

There are many reasons, I just live with it and check with Snopes a lot.

If you use Facebook a lot, and are prone to click and/or re-post things, I recommend liking Facecrooks and following their feed. They share solid info about scams, viruses, ways to avoid hacking, etc.

And as Dennis said, watch out for apps and links.

Did you hear that Kyle died after being mugged? I heard that he was happy when he died but he is going to be missed.

This cracks me up. I not only knew that Kyle and Kelly did not have a trip planned, but I know how many lectures they have booked for 2012
