Facebook Thief

As if I didn't have enough drama with the dogs...well, I only got some facebook stalker freak as well!!!

First of all, please, please, please make sure you are safe on facebook. I fell victim to some freak stealing my pictures because facebook changed their settings which meant my original privacy settings were re-set and my pictures and info were open for EVERYONE to see!

One of my good friend's called me telling me they had a message from someone (she didn't know) warning her that Miss X (facebook thief) was using my pictures (I also do not know who this person is).

I actually thought it was a joke until my friend sent me a link! The profile pic of Miss X was MY picture taken like 6 years ago. I looked no further because I was furious.

Next day, I told my work girls about it....who discovered this freak's pictures were all mine (mobile uploads/albums/profile) pics with my friends and sisters....she even allowed people to comment on them and thanking them for compliments etc. I could have been sick.

I couldn't work out how this freak got my pictures, especially as I changed my settings to completely private just last year! However, like I said before, facebook regularly change their settings and my profile was visible to the whole world!

What did I do next?

Well, with great advice from friends, tweeters and facebook folk, we all reported Miss X to facebook and got the account shut down.

Now, all my settings are private.

Go and check yours because you just never know what weirdo might do the same to you.
