Did You Join Fan Q Yet? -A Word of Caution

If you are planning to join Fan Q just wanted to pass on a word of caution. A few weeks now I have gotten an notification from them with a private message from two folks I know. Now, I know these folks and one in particular, shys away from social networks of any kind. So my surprise made me wary.

The emails have a note saying that it is a private message and if I do not open they will know I ignored them. Well, of course I resented the manipulation. I was about to call one of them and tell them “I am ignoring your message but what is it you wanted to tell me?” Especially since I had just seen them that day.

Well, I love social networking but decided to explore a bit so I googled the network and saw an article that discribed the social engineering technique that was used for Fan Q.

So be alert. Has anyone else had this experiance?

    Boy, this kind of thing really makes one stop and think. The “Big Brother” stuff is sometimes just a click away. Thanks, Rosie, for the important heads up.
