Lately I have been getting this DM from friends on Twitter, so I’m putting a link to Scott Stratten’s Blog post here so it is easy to find (Scott does a great job letting you know what to do), as I have a feeling this will probably resurface, regularly until Twitter figures out a way to prevent these types of attacks.
SORRY, YOU’VE BEEN PHISHED. WHAT? by Scott Stratten aka @Unmarketing
UPDATE: recently the newest Phishing scams include:
“Someone said this real bad thing about you in a blog….[link removed]”
“Found you in this funny picture”
“ROFL this pic i found of you had me dying lol”
Simply if it looks unusual, tweet the person who sent it or dm them and ask them if they sent it, look for confirmation, as most people hit my these bugs don’t even know they were, until someone points it out to them.
