By | September 16th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

What are these Phishing Scams on Twitter Direct Messages on Twitter with the subject line as lol u didn't see them tapping u your in this Hey this person is writing cruel things about you wow your busted in this video fb is offering freee apple ipadds 2 Hey this user is writing cruel things about you OMG your in this and more....... The first thing we notice is, that most of the time, the grammar or the spelling is incorrect   -  Some lately are coming through with a link that looks like it comes from Facebook - so this is fooling even more people than before - I am seeing these posts almost every day. What happens when you click on a scam link Normally what happens is that you  appear to be logged out of Twitter and made to log in again - and HEY Presto - the scammers have your details and password - and start sending out DM's - they are quite clever only doing one every couple of days so it takes a while for [...]

LinkedIn Update, Member Passwords were Hacked – How to change Password

By | June 6th, 2012|Categories: Scams, Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , |

LinkedIn have now confirmed that some of the passwords were hacked today. Well, what they actually say is "We can confirm that some of the passwords that were compromised correspond to LinkedIn accounts." Members that have accounts associated with the compromised passwords will notice that their LinkedIn account password is no longer valid. These members will also receive an email from LinkedIn with instructions on how to reset their passwords. There will not be any links in these emails. For security reasons, you should never change your password on any website by following a link in an email. These affected members will receive a second email from our Customer Support team providing a bit more context on this situation and why they are being asked to change their passwords. Via .... http://blog.linkedin.com/2012/06/06/linkedin-member-passwords-compromised/ So that is a good thing to remember - never change your password from a link in an email, and don't on this occasion. To confirm they say if you have been compromised you won't be able to log in and LinkedIn are going to send you details, I would assume [...]

Facebook scam video – OMG I just hate RIHANNA after watching this video

By | December 7th, 2011|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , |

OMG I just hate Rihanna after watching this video, has found its way to my friends facebook walls. Scammers are using celebrities we like to get to us, this time its to watch Rihanna on youtube.   Scams are sometimes connected to celebrities because hackers know people just can't wait to click that link without thinking, and by then its too late. This particular scam has been around for ages now, its changed shape or form but essentially its always the same - this is what it looks like now... As you see it tells you that you will LOST your all respect for RIHANNA after watching this, a tell-tail sign that its fake, its very bad English. As many scams or hoaxes like this is actually a survey scam -  when you click the link it will take you to a survey - and you know the rest.... if you don't, then read these! :) http://techieminx.com/scam-alerts-facebook-girl-killed-herself-scam-twitter-email.html http://techieminx.com/facebook-gold-membership-hoax.html http://techieminx.com/clever-facebook-7th-birthday-scam.html http://techieminx.com/facebook-scam-incredible-this-girl-is-rapped-in-the-school-buss.html http://techieminx.com/facebook-scam-google-get-invite.html http://techieminx.com/scam-alerts-facebook-girl-killed-herself-scam-twitter-email.html   These and many more are pretty much the same if not identical as the survey scam above, you don't see a video at [...]

Twitter News – Activity Arrives and A Hack Attack

By | August 24th, 2011|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Twitter news... You may have heard that Twitter has launched another change on Twitter.com; I'll keep this brief as you will see for yourself soon enough. Activity  This shows favorites, follows, retweets, and more by people that you follow - this is next to @mentions, which now has your @name and retweets has gone  - this is being rolled out slowly as not everyone has it yet. I'm not sure about the usefulness of this yet, it makes it harder to see your retweets - but at least it is on another page and you have to click to see it.   One thing maybe to remember is that everything you do now, show's up in picture form for everyone to see, well maybe not EVERYTHING :) Some people are loving these new changes in Twitter, but some say its ruining what we once  had, simplicity - I do have to agree.  I wonder what your view is, do you like these changes from the #oldtwitter to the new? In other news...... New Phishing Attack There is another new Phising [...]

When is Facebook not Facebook – when its FaceBook

By | April 15th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

  Just when you thought it was safe to go back to reading my blog, there is another Facebook warning. Doing the rounds at the moment is an email that appears to come from Facebook that looks like this...   Dear user of FaceBook. Your password is not safe! To secure your account the password has been changed automatically. Attached document contains a new password to your account and detailed information about new security measures. Thank you for attention, Your Facebook If Facebook were to contact you they would use your user name, they would write their name correctly and they would not send you an attachment. More worrying however, is this one that I received today - it looks very real indeed.  Note the link at the top; lots of numbers, that looks fake - but all of the links look real. "Sorry that you've been having trouble logging into your Facebook account"  I wasn't have trouble logging in. So I just tried again via Facebook.com and it logged in right away, so you can safely assume that this is [...]
