I just got a comment on 1 of the posts I shared from this site to Facebook.
, I hope you don’t get this comment the wrong way, I must say your posts are lovely and interesting, unfortunately, we are not friends here on Facebook, I tried several times sending you a friend request but it was canceled if you don’t mind kindly click on my profile and send me a friend request.”
So just for the halibut, I clicked on his profile. First thing that jumps out at me is his tagline:
PROCTECTING THE FLAG!
But he claims to have graduated from West Point? Somehow I think not. Probably the only truthful statement in that profile is that he lives in Damascus, Syria. And I’m even suspicious of that.
I get so many friend requests I ignore that I don’t know if he’s ever really sent me one or not. But if so, it will be cancelled, just like those before it. And if not, then it’ll be cancelled anyway.
Maybe one of these days I’ll accept 1 of these sorts of request just to see what they try to do. I worry that FB doesn’t give me enough granularity in terms of what he’d be able to see if I accepted such a request, ie, could he see my family’s posts, etc, so I probably actually won’t string any of these folks along like that, but it’s tempting. It might be fun scamming the scammers.
