Well, I'm sure many of you have seen/heard the recent news stories about stalkers/predators going onto Myspace and pose as a young girl (or old) looking to meet with you/chat with you. Since many MySpace users post their personal information (telephone for friends, street address), it is not safe and you should not be putting this information up there.
Also, to show you how real this is..I was contacted on my never used myspace account (got emailed about the new PM) and it was the following message:
Some things to note about this message which makes this person obviously fake :POriginally Posted by Katie (Some stranger)
It's Katie from MS: MS stands for Middle School right? Well, that was several years ago for me...haven't been to my MS in ages
Then..it goes on proving the fake:
since I moved to Connecticut about 2 months ago...: Two months ago you moved here? They how the hell did you go to my "MS"? I'm not a MS student and that was well over 3 years ago!
Ah well...the final piece of evidence is the email they told me to contact them if I wanted "pics" :ROFL: It was an obvious fake email, but hey..I'm a kid..so I don't know better ;)
So...the lesson is:
Be careful on Myspace. I know most of you don't go there (well..I don't atleast), but just tell your friends or little relatives about this concern :P
Well, I know we are all smart not to fall for these stupid tricks, but just carry out the word my friends!
