O/T...Facebook help.....

I barely use Facebook, not that interested. Now I get a message saying:

"Your account has been blocked due to suspicious activity."

Is this a trick? What are your thoughts?

Email was it? Just delete it, I get them all the time from ebay, paypal, the ANZ bank.... all with very accurate-looking logos etc, all wanting me to click links to confirm my details. Usually the wording is a dead give-away: "We at Paypal are very interesting to keep your details safe of other who wish you very harmful."

When I'm on the work computer, they often receive a reply that would make the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan blush.

Same for paypal and several banks, just spammers phishing for your personal details to hack into your account or onsell your details.

The biggest thing to look for is the email address of where it came from, some of them are just plain bogus and also if the email does not mention you by name it is definitely shonky.

Another thing to remember is that none of these banks, paypal or facebook etc will ask you for your personal details because the already have them, they will only ask you for a PIN number etc if you call them.

A lot of the companies being hacked have email addresses that you can forward this sort of junk mail onto for them to try to track the scammers, for example spoof@paypal.com.au

I use Gmail for my emails and they seem to filter most of the crap and if they are not sure they give you the option of having a look yourself.

I just dumped it. I thought someone might've put something naughty on my page thingy...(Bloody Dusty)

My daughter also pointed out it came thru our home e-mail, not my oldholden e-mail which is where I'm registered thru. So it's obviously spam.

Or it's Doctor BB Jimmy doing unspeakable things.

Thanks.

The really dangerous one is Car Sales. we sold a car on there recently, and somehow they know you have listed and they send you an email saying "Urgent, update your details". It almost caught me because it came right after I put up the ad. Fortunately, Carsales had a warning on the front page of their site.
