Keep getting phished; keep losing friends at MySpace!
I am very pissed off.
I keep getting hacked/phished/spammed at MySpace; got phished again today, and now have lost four key friends. If this doesn't stop, I am not going to have any friends left!
If anyone has MySpace, PLEASE, PLEASE check your comments; if there are "comments" from people like
or anything else that looks even REMOTELY suspicious, or you don't recognize what it is, GET RID of it AT ONCE, delete the friend who sent it to you (temporarily if feasable; I had to delete four friends because of it!)!
You CAN, however, RE REQUEST the deleted friends; I plan to, but ONLY if they do what I am imploring here!!
THIS IS SPAM!!!!!! You run the risk of getting spammed all the more, phished, or even hacked!!!!
Hopefully they will understand the seriousness of what's going on; they had spam in their account, and somehow I got it; that's what phishing is; it's similar to hacking; and hopefully they will re request me); and before doing so (i.e. deleting them as friends), explain what's going on and let them know.
Their accounts are in jeopardy; it is becoming a serious problem at MySpace.
In order to further protect yourself, CHANGE your MySpace password EVERY OTHER DAY; check ALL messages/comments from people! You HAVE to be vigilent!! EXTREMELY vigilent!!!!
The moderator has been kind enough to let me know what's happened (plus it's kinda' hard to miss!); still, it PISSES me off big time! Don't these fuckers have anything better to do than to make others miserable, including me??
If this doesn't stop soon, I am going to have to cancel my MySpace account and start all over!!
It's enough to make me want to just roll over and give up on life! (NOT really, but I am getting desperate; I am tired of having to worry like this; it's NOT good for my health!!!!)

|You are so right. My Facebook account was causing me great woe, but FB got it straightened out. The PHISHING has to stop! I love AD--I feel very safe here! e|

|There are so many Christian sites available. Shoutlife is a great social networking site, and the friends you make are other Christians.
Maybe something like that would better suit you.

|Texas Tornado, I like it. I picked this article to read because it sounds just like me, the pissed off part anyway, thank goodness I haven't had a problem with MySpace. Then again, my friend list isn't that big.
Thank you for your kind words so I figured I would bop on over and check out your page and I am glad that I did. It is in my opinion that we are chosen to write and not the other way around like some believe.
Hope to see you around the boards.

|No one can blame you for getting this angry. The four friends should understand, when they realize why they were deleted. Good article.|

|Sorry Karen, my son and sister-in-law got hacked once with a Macy Card. After they changed their password and deleted the comment it stopped. I tell all of my friends to change their password often and don't accept comments from people you don't know. It's sad but this is how the world is today. Whenever I get messages like the ones you're talking about I mark them as spam and block them from contacting me. A few that I turned in had their profiles deleted and banned from myspace. Good Luck|

|I've looked at MySpace a few times and either I'm missing something or it simply doesn't appeal to me. Have you have an good experiences with it?|

|I went to My Space, looked, didn't liked and got the hell out of there before you could shout Banzai!!!
Keep the friends you have here, out there are full of weirdos with too much time in their hands and a very sick brain in their heads.

That poor kitty! Poor YOU!! You said it perfectly: they don't have anything better to do than to make one miserable. Frustrated. And yes, even ANGRY. You know what to do. Do it, go on. Keep doing what they said, go on. If people truly are your friends, they will accept you back. 'K? Excellent display of ARRGGGGGHHHHHHHH. :) Love you!
(((HUGS))) and love, *me*

|You hit it on the head. That's the sad part, they DON'T have anything better to do. I was hacked earlier in the year and lost my long-standing yahoo account. So, I understand your frustration.|

|No, it isn't good for your health, mental or physical! You are on track with that, Karen. I don't have a MySpace account and don't plan on getting one. Hope you manage to get rid of the spam!
