Trying to explain my E-mail mess, Facebook mess and Twitter mess.

I have had more screwy things happen with my e-mail, Twitter and Facebook.  The first one was with Facebook.  Someone hacked into my MSN e-mail account and sent all my contacts a request to be his friend on Facebook.  Whoever it was used my son’s name and a photo of some old man.  So some of my friends befriended him thinking he was a relative of mine.  After doing research I found out he was Indonesian and I’m not even sure what he thought he would get out of doing this.  I changed my password on my MSN account and warned all my friends to delete him from Facebook. 

At the time I was having my MSN account  forward all  e-mails to my G-mail account.  Tonight I found out I had 1551 e-mails I didn’t know about because they weren’t forwarded.  Now, I assume  all of you are very confused.  I know I am.  The reason why I am telling you this is because I didn’t realize I had all these comments to my last post.  Then I read all these lovely, heart warming comments that just made me so happy to know you all care.

At the same time all this is happening I find out from a friend that strange posts are appearing from me on my Twitter account.  I deleted them.  I guess I should go change the password too.  I wonder if it was the same person doing all of this.

So,  please don’t think I was ignoring you.  I, truly, didn’t know there were any comments here.  I really appreciate all your thoughts and prayers.

    Joan, I have more Facebook problems than I can count. I have my own account, and I monitor two accounts for work. But when I post something in my own account, it shows up in one of my work accounts. This includes photos of my kids, my favorite TV shows, etc. I don’t think this can ever be straightened out. Facebook is a mess, and this new interface with people’s only option being “Like” instead of “Fan” has made it impossible to send out mass emails about big sales we have. It’s a horror show.

    Also, someone hacked into my son-in-law’s account and sent out requests to everyone for money! Honestly, sometimes I wish I didn’t even own a computer.

      Computers can be a love/hate kind of thing. I get stuck on my computer and I can’t seem to unstick myself to get anything done. I hardly read books any more. I’ve weened myself off the TV. Now I have to wean myself off the computer.

    Oh, that sucks. I notice every once in awhile I’ll see a message that you posted on my Facebook wall, and when I click on the message, nothing is there. Weird!

    Someone hacked my BFF’s Facebook & persoanl email and she’s crazy pissed over it. I myself have had some crazy blog spammers the past three weeks, and get like 300+ spam messages a day on my blog. I have to keep deleting all my spam and worry that I’m missing real comments from people who used a swear word or through in a link to something and who aren’t spammers.
