Crazy Facebook HackersS took care of the babies and let me sleep in a little morning. It was so nice since the weather is so gray and cloudy here.
I got up, played with the girls a bit and then decided to check my email and facebook page. I had an email from a guy who works at the school asking me if everything was ok and if I was in London. He'd heard I'd been mugged and was stuck over there. Weird....emailed him back, said no.
I log onto facebook and see two open chat windows. I never chat on facebook. One of the windows is with my 13 year old cousin, another is with his mom. I begin to read through them and see that someone has created this elaborate story and is pretending to be me. They say I am in London, got mugged, the police won't help, I lost my passport, etc. Obviously the 13 year old is freaked out. Luckily he is suspicious and goes to get his mom. The chat continues with her. This person is very, very good. She asks them a few questions only I would know and the person goes offline.
She's still a little worried about us. It runs through her head that we might have left with the babies. (Which I later assure her we would NEVER, EVER even fathom). So she tries calling my cell (no reception at home) and our home phone. S unplugged it by accident last night. She then gets a bit more worried and ends up talking to her dad. He ends up calling my Dad. They are worriers by nature. So my parents call both our cell phones, home phones. No answer. They feel like its nothing but how can they help but be concerned when they can't contact us.
Luckily I got online just as my cousin was about to drive 1 hour to check on us. I call her and let her know we are just fine. I call my parents and we all have a good laugh.
The person who hacked my account went as far as removing all my recent posts and deleting the ones people who had been contacted tried to post.
Passwords are changed, account security is increased.
But it still leaves an icky feeling. There is a lot of personal information there.
Make sure your passwords are strong. This was the only account I had that had a weak one.
