I was on Facebook and got an IM from "him." All of a sudden I get a familiar story about filling out police reports, family and him stuck in London, robbed at gunpoint, no cash, credit cards, etc. He's apparently a Peach Head and that's how I added him, but I can't recall his screen name. His Facebook has apparently been hacked and if you know him, he needs to be notified. I logged off immediately when it started sounding fishy. Thanks.

Facebook and Myspace page hacking is such a common thing now. Sucks!

He knows it has been hacked, he sent a message about it on the Allman listserv, I'll copy and paste it here in a minute.

Here ya go, from Gary from the Allman listserv:

I just got a FB virus somehow. You may want to unfriend me for the time being. if you do, please email me and when I straighten out the acct, I'll look for you and re-add you.

I was on FB this AM and left the acct open when i went to the gym.. when I returned, there was some scam that was sent to me about a friend that was robbed at gun point and that I should send money. I knew it was a scam but next thing I know, I lost access to my acct. The folks that do have access to it appear to be online, posing as me and engaging FB friends that are on line and pushing the same robbed at gun point story. No idea how i got it but I don't want you to get it too. I'm a victim here and don't want you to also be one. Please send this email to any mutual FB friends we have that might not be on the lists. Sorry folks.

Thanks,

Gary

Thanks Ryan

The person that I was chatting with didn't seem to have a sense of urgency about needing help. Pretty much stumbled all over himself when I suggested some options...

Some more from Gary (which makes me wonder if Dave you should be concerned, or for that matter if you should be as well Jon, and even myself since I am friends with you Jon, anyways thought I would post this too in case it helps):

A little more insight - I run webroot and mcafee on my work pc. neither have picked up anything so not sure how my acct was attacked. I rec'd a facebook IM from Alan Cotrell (sp) which he undoubtedly did not send. at first I thought it might have come from him and I quickly realized it was an automated thing. So if you know Alan, he likely became infected and then I did. I may have given it to Dave Pierson and possibly others. this completely sucks. My FB acct automatically IM'd Dave when I returned to the desk and I quickly tried to communicate with him that I hadn't IM'd him and that my PC or acct appears to have been compromised. I still don't know that the best course of action is. I've filled out forms and have submitted them to FB but have not heard back from them. anyway...sorry to anyone who joins my ranks.It all happened while I was away from the PC. So I didn't consciously do anything to proliferate it other than leave my FB acct open while i was away.

Its also coming in FB emails too. The words in the description have double letters in some of the words. It references to a video of some kind. Suisie opened her email and I hope our virus protector caught it. All the emails came from girls named Susan which is odd. So far.

Big Dave check this out from Gary on the Listserv (I am hesitant to send him an email to direct him here because I don't want to get a virius):

This really isn't funny. The program actually went into my gmail account too and has been fwding all of my emails to the hacker. Fortunately, the program didn't change the gmail password so I was able to undo it. My old AOL account might have been effected too...not sure. In the meantime, I still have no access to FB and someone is out there pretending to be me and asking people for money. If anyone knows Dave Pierson's telephone number, I'd like to call him and see how he's dealing with this. Please send it to me privately.

Gary's email is wonwayout@GMAIL.COM

From Gary once again, hopefully the situation is resolved:

My regrets for the disruption to the lists today. I am back into my FB account and all should be well. If you unfriended me and care to refriend, I'm back in charge of the white house.

I don't appear to have been affected by the hackers. I had the foresight to log out when I smelled the BS beginning. I did change my FB password, just in case. Gary and I have communicated since all this went down and we are cool. My problem wasn't with him anyway. It was with the SCUM hackers.

BASTARD$!! BUZZ KILLERS!! DEATH TO HACKERS!




Whew.....I feel better.
