Who are all these HOT ladies?

You fire up your computer, log on to Facebook to see what your friends are up to, and then you see a request from an unknown person. Normally, you would just ignore the invite, but this person, this lady, is quite becoming. “Well,” you think, “looks like I’ve still got the stuff.” So what do you do? You accept the request. Hey, if a hot lady wants to be your bud, then you’re more than willing to check out her pictures and read her occasional posts.

Just  one problem, though. That beautiful woman you just befriended. She’s not really a woman.

This isn’t one of those transvestite deals. On the internet, who can really tell the difference anyway? Instead, this is a spammer disguised as a beautiful woman. And he just used your sex drive and your curiosity to make a bit of cash for himself.

Over the next few days, you’ll find that your new friend has some odd things to say. “Free iPhone!” she keeps exclaiming. “Just visit this website: blahblahblah.com!”

Then she’s all, “OMG! FUNNIEST VIDEO E VER!!!! I CANT BELEIVE I DID THTA!”

Obviously she’s borderline illiterate, but she’s still hot, so maybe you hang in for a while.

All of those messages are spam of one type of another. Depending on the specific attack, you might categorize it as a clickjack or phishing.

If you have already said “yes!” to all those sexy ladies, then it’s time to reconsider. They’re just making life harder for you.

What should you do?

Step 1: Report them.

Step 2: Delete them.

It feels so good to be alone.
