SCAM ALERT - Spoofed Facebook Accounts

The latest Facebook scam takes advantage of users' trust in their friends. Scammers are making duplicate accounts, and then sending friend requests to friends of the original Facebook account holder. For example, say you have a friend named Jane Smith, and you've been friends with her on Facebook for several years. Suddenly, "Jane Smith" (complete with a profile photo you recognize) sends you a new Facebook friend request. What's going on here?

Scammers are betting that you'll accept their request, thinking, "Oh, Jane must have accidentally unfriended me, and is now refriending," or, "Maybe she was off Facebook for a while and has recently rejoined." Unfortunately, it's likelier that neither of these scenarios is true. What's really happening is that someone has duplicated Jane's account in order to friend her friends and gather their personal information or send them spam.

If you've already been fooled by this scam, immediately unfriend the fake account. You can also report the offense to Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/help/167722253287296/

To avoid falling prey to this con in the first place, always check with friends who send you seemingly duplicated requests, using a separate method (such as texting or email) to see if their request is legitimate. Also, inform your other Facebook friends because it's likely you and Jane Smith have some friends in common that the scammer will also try to fool. Finally, to ensure your account doesn't get copied, change your password and adjust privacy settings to something other than Facebook's default "public" view.

SHORT TUTORIAL/FAQ - Is Private Browsing Totally Private?

Question: Is private browsing totally private?

Answer: Maintaining your privacy online is difficult because everything you do is tracked in some way and leaves an electronic "footprint." To counteract this phenomenon, each web browser has something called private mode. When you browse in this mode, the browser doesn't record where you go. Here's how to browse in private mode in Chrome. (If you use a browser other than Chrome, check its help section to find out how to browse privately.)

1. Open a Chrome window.
2. In the top right corner, click the Menu icon (stacked horizontal bars).
3. Select New Incognito Window.
4. A new window will open with a gray "incognito" icon in the top left corner.
5. When you want to close incognito mode, just click "X" in each incognito window.

This method allows you to browse the Internet privately without Chrome saving the sites you visit. You can also try using an entirely private search engine like DuckDuckGo https://duckduckgo.com/. The company's privacy policy is as follows: "What you search for is your own business and we'd like to keep it that way. That's why we don't collect any personal information and therefore, have none to share."

Just remember that neither of these methods are foolproof. Your Internet service provider can still detect the sites you visit, and there is still evidence on your computer that a tech-savvy person could find. Plus, if your employer monitors your computer for work, they can see the sites you visit, as can those sites themselves.
