I'm so angry! Why do some people think it's ok to steal other peoples hard earned money?
Friggin hackers have been messing with my family. Last night at supper time I checked Facebook and had a new friend request from Auntie. I immediately knew she had been hacked. Ughh, of all people. The one person who can literally make a mountain out of a mole hill.
I jumped in the car and went to her house to tell her and change her passwords. She was upset but I told her it wasn't anything she did and I noticed it quickly so it should be ok. I changed her account passwords and posted on her Facebook page NOT to accept friend requests from her for a few days. Several people, like me, recognized it as a hack and deleted the requests. But not all of them........
A few hours later I get a half hysterical call from Auntie. One of her friends accepted the request and soon was "chatting" with who they thought was auntie who needed money. AND SHE GAVE THEM ALL HER INFO! Luckily at the end of the conversation she got suspicious and called Auntie on the phone to confirm. Well, she spent the next 2 hours on the phone with her bank, freezing her accounts, changing credit card numbers etc. Then she has to contact all her utilities who have pre-authorized payments and give them new account numbers. She acted quickly enough that they didn't have time to get any of her money.
I'm still fuming over it. I wish I could get those guys and smack them stupid.
Why do they have to prey on people? Why can't they get a real damn job? And in all honestly, the friend told me what they said to her, and it wasn't even a good scam. Pretty weak ass if you ask me, but she fell for it anyways
Hopefully this is the end of it. I can't take another evening like last night.
