Beware of Twitter Scams!


There's a shitload of scams on Twitter to access your log-in info. You get a message that says either "is this a picture of you?" "is this you in the video?" or "someone said something nasty about you on this blog" and then if you click on the address they provide, there's a log-in for what looks like Twitter. Always be suspicious when people you don't know are giving you anything to click on, even a friend whose account could have been tapped into. Contact that friend and see if they actually send you the link. Never give log-in info.

  2. Did I ever tell you that I love your "new" header image? I guess it's not really new anymore, you've had it for awhile... nevertheless, looks slick.

  3. Thanks, Doc. This is the power of blogging. A blogger noticed me changing the background constantly on the blog and gave me a new banner. Talented and nice guy.

  8. Jeremy;
    Why don't I see more of that freaking handsome face? Go for it! Yes, publicize the shit out of it! We need more zombies--lots more zombies! We have about 20 committed so far and it's still early in the game. This could be a huge blogging event. Perhaps we should tell blogger about it??? Yes, damn those glitter happy vampires!

  10. Good girl. Most people get all excited to find out who was putting up pics of them or saying nasty things.

  11. It's like those scams where you get an email saying you have millions waiting for you in some urine soaked hell hole in Africa. Of course you either have to give them your private information or some cash. The sad part is, somebody always falls for it.
