Before you reply ‘Just dandy’

Are all of those “Hi, how are you doing,” Facebook messages to me really from accounts that have been hacked?

Sure, I recognize half of the people, maybe more, but do they all come up with identical messages? How improbable. Makes me wary, especially after my own account had been hacked.

Apparently, it’s very easy to set up a counterfeit you and invite all of your “friends” to check in at the new address.

Just how secure is that party line, anyhoo?

If you think one of your real friends has been hacked, tell them, so they can alert FB security. Inform them that merely changing their password won’t fix it, too.

Anyone else gone through this?
