Social Network Emails – Your account may have been compromised – What to do.

By | February 23rd, 2013|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , |

Users are still concerned after receiving emails saying that their accounts might have been compromised or the one entitled -  Important information regarding your security and privacy from social networking sites -  Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest. The problem arose when Zendesk  who store and organise emails for customer support and help desks for these social networks had their systems hacked. Zendesk believe that during the security breach personal information such as email addresses linked to these platforms may have been downloaded by the hacker. Quote from the zendesk blog  We believe that the hacker downloaded email addresses of users who contacted those three customers for support, as well as support email subject lines. We notified our affected customers immediately and are working with them to assist in their response. This will only affect you if you have emailed customer support at Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr - which most of us have at some point. I imagine if you have then that is why you have received an email warning you of the breach. - There is no indication that passwords have been stolen at all. So, I [...]

Facebook Profile Viewer Scam – Who is looking at your timeline?

By | November 24th, 2012|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , , , , , |

CC - http://www.flickr.com/photos/striatic/2192192956/ Can you see who is looking at your facebook profile I last wrote about this scam 2 years ago, or a scam just like it - as the above link shows - and still we have not learned our lesson. We are still clicking and sharing these applications.  Who is watching your Profile, who are my Facebook profile visitors, who is looking at your timeline. Someone suggested we are curious, I think we are paranoid. Is my ex looking at what I am saying on Facebook? Does that boy I fancy know I stalk him on facebook? HA, not me!   You know you can block people or set your profile up so that not everyone can view it or even find it. Facebook Profile Viewer Scam This latest one appears to be an app called Facebook Profile Viewers, which was shared by a "friend" on Facebook to 45 people that I can see. If he did that on purpose I can only assume that he thought it was real - but I would probably put money on it that [...]

Where are my DM’s #Twitter

By | May 20th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

There have been an increasing amount of complaints regarding missing dm's, lost messages, direct messages on Twitter recently and there are likely to be a few more in the next few days. Twitter has deleted some users DM's - Direct Messages. Its okay, its just a twitter bug, they do know about it .... Twitter Support says Bug Alert: Some users are currently experiencing an issue with direct messages disappearing, without the sender or receiver deleting them from their inbox. Some users may experience a delay in DM delivery. A notification may arrive to your email inbox, but the DM won't appear for some time after the email delivery. These are bugs, and our engineers are hard at work to solve these issues. Follow @support for updates! Also while we are talking about Twitter, there is another Phishing Scam going around that says Twitter is going to charge do not click this. Its similar to twitter scams where one t says, Is this picture about you, and Is this blog about you - these are still spreading like viruses after more [...]

New Facebook Scam – Oakleys Sunglasses Hoax

By | May 10th, 2012|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , , , |

There is a new Facebook scam that promises you a Free Pair of Oakleys Sunglasses. Its not from Oakley sadly, so no free sunglasses, just a hoax. Slightly different to all of the other survey scams we have discussed. The message appears on your friends wall, so you think it must be safe he has done it, wrong! To celebrate the Summer, Oakley is giving away free shades to all Facebook users. Its a two step process this time where you have to first share the link and then like the page - Liking the page takes you to a survey that asks for your personal information, this is something you should never put in a survey anyway. As we've discussed before the reason behind this scam is that the scammer gets paid for every survey completed. As writing this it seems that Facebook may have blocked the survey so that is one good thing but people are still sharing the link. Which in itself at the moment is harmless but I assume it won't be long until the scammer links it [...]

Whitney Houston Scams – Be careful what you click

By | February 17th, 2012|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

  Whitney Houston Scams As usual when someone dies, the hackers, scammers, cyber criminals use it against us. They know we are weak, they know we are not paying attention. They know we are all fighting for new information or great tracks... What happened? Why did it happen? Is it true? What is going to happen? I love that song! This is when they get us, when we are not thinking, we click a link and bam - its gone to all our friends and family saying its safe because you liked it. There are even some going around that say they are going to show you Whitney's autopsy really? You'd click that?  Well I know some are so distraught they just need to know the facts. The Autopsy one doesn't take you to a YouTube link but says that flash needs to be updated, and you have to install. Another one, takes you to a link to download Whitney wallpaper ... woah! Big Mistake - Huge!  You will be installing something very nasty! Usually it will just take you to a [...]

Facebook video scam puts convincing personal message on your wall

By | December 16th, 2011|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , , , , , |

More scams .... I got this today - on my Facebook wall - shared by one of my friends, you might think it is authentic as it had my name in it. It shows the link as a blogspot address which if you look at it - doesn't look too real - UYTUTIUYUIUIOU looks like someone had a heart attack at the keyboard. There is usually a telltale sign that says its a fake share - that is it on this one, apart from the fact it has a possible explicit picture beside the message.  There was another similar one recently with a different picture. Hey Michelle u wont believe!  I dare you to watch this 98% Of People Cant Watch This Video For More Than 25 Seconds I checked others that were shared and they had different messages but all with a personal touch. Amazing! dave check the sad post I dare you can watch this . Hey! kevin u wont believe! I dare you can watch this . And so on ..... Obviously this is a scam, but [...]

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 [...]
