My Facebook page was compromised. I couldn’t sign on. Was urged to change my password. My former password was not accepted. My birth date was “wrong”. I tried several times. I was looped back to the beginning. I spent hours on this. I gave up and opened a new account. Some of you know this.
Today I got an e mail from Facebook telling me that a friend reported someone pretending to be me. They will let me know what they find. Then I thought I would sign in to Facebook, put my name in the search box and see how many profiles came up. Facebook wanted confirmation of my identity and asked for my driver’s license. I have to take a photo and send it. Normally my friend helps me with stuff like this, but we are isolating. Ed gave me a good suggestion and as soon as my phone is charged, I’ll do it. He said to take the picture, send it to myself, and upload it from my received e mail.
Meanwhile, Apple also asked me for a confirmation of my identity. My phone wouldn’t accept what I thought was my password. I thought I had a file in my Word documents named Apple with all kinds of information. My documents don’t have it.
I am receiving e mails from stores I deal with telling me “your password has been successfully changed”. I am contacting them and asking them to cancel the accounts. You shop somewhere and immediately they marry you. Zero interest in marrying stores.
Someone has made me their pet project. Ed surmised that perhaps it is because they don’t like my political opinions. I am surprised my blog hasn’t been affected and that may be because we don't use our names on this site. The age of technology will do me in.
