PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE
I am 40 and still an avid giff gaffer. I have thousands of connections on LinkedIn for work and only 423 on Facebook as i am very private in my personal life.
I have been hacked on facebook like most others already. Last night I recieved messages from 'GIFF GAFF' saying i had blocked my phone and ordered a new sim!
This is a new hacking scam! I had a text message with a link (don't click!!!!!!) telling me to click on this link to secure my password.
Please be aware, it looked so genuine in a way however it was obvious to me as GIFF GAFF only send messages in the same way, always and forever.
I am older so i noticed something fishy about it.
Best thing to do is ignore it. reboot if nessecary.
Thank you for reading my message. xx Sara
Thanks for the warning @sarayvonneevans
Can you please copy and paste the message here please so we can examine it including the address behind the link if possible?
Thanks for the warning.
I can't help laughing at this though
"have thousands of connections on LinkedIn for work and only 423 on Facebook as i am very private"
I must be a recluse then if a 'very private' person only has 423 contacts of Facebook.
I use different passwords for each site, so at least if one is hacked the others not effected
