I would like to bring to the attention of all my readers and followers a real problem we all have today just by being present on social media. One of my dear friends on Facebook had her identity profile stolen yesterday along with pictures. It caused her a ton of anguish, because the imposter was using her name and identity to ask for money in her circle of friends and who knows what else would have happened if she had not been alerted by one of her friends in the early morning of strange activities going on under her name. It took many hours of her precious working day, a lot of efforts from her friends watching her back and taking actions along with her, but the impostor is now gone and so is the problem.
Virtual friends can turn in real friends and this is one of the moments when we can all come true for each others and act together making sure our good people are not defamed by malicious individuals who can injure someone’s name and reputation in a instant.
Please take a few moments of your time to read these two posts written by my friend Carra Riley, the person whose identity profile was stolen and our friend Tric Weyerbacher Ortiz who helped her in many ways.
The same situation can happen to anyone. If you ever see some funny, strange or uncharacteristic activities going on under somebody’s name you trust and care to follow, please make sure to tell that person at once. It’s our social responsibility. Ciao,
