HELLO MY FELLOW HYRULIANS, THIS IS URGENT!!!
I don't know if this is old news or not, but I just got a message that was supposedly from "Facebook" on my phone that says the following:
Immediately my alarmbells went off and I went in search of who or what it is, and several people on facebook have been complaining about it. I'm gonna call Laz+nxCarLW an "it" in this journal you'll see why in a minute...also: I blocked out names and photo's so I don't get in trouble for posting them without people's consent. Some I haven't, but I have a good reason.
Next, I found this person's post about this hacker:
In it you can see he's taken a screenshot of this hacker's supposed account and there's a profile pic on it! But don't be fooled, it could be the picture of some random person this hacker pulled off the internet to cover it's trail!
So you can never know who or what this individual is just by looking at the profile, it even be a bot for all I know!(SORRY IF THIS REALLY IS A PICTURE OF AN INNOCENT PERSON THAT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS WHOLE HACKER SITUATION!!! NOW YOU KNOW THIS THING'S USING ONE OF YOUR PICS!!!)
Many times what these hackers would do, is use a picture of a real person or stock image, to give off the illusion that it's a legit account of some harmless stranger. You'll find more examples in the rest of this journal! (I APPOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE IF THESE PICTURE AREN'T OF PEOPLE WHO DO THIS KIND OF STUFF! I'M SORRY, BUT SOMEONE OR SOMETHING OUT THERE IS USING YOUR PICTURES TO HIDE THEIR OWN JUST SO THEY CAN CONTINUE DOING THEIR CYBERCRIMES!)
So, since this "thing" is a possible hacker, I immediately went ahead and started searching if there are more than one account, cause believe me, these things often think ahead! And just as I thought; There are a LOT of them!!!
The names in red aren't as they appear in the profile, just in case it's of an innocent person, but: "Why would it appear in the same search with "Laz+nxCarLW"? And again, some of them have pictures!
There was even a Group!!!
That's just Facebook alone!!! I BLOCKED them all, just to be sure and went over to my other social media's to see where else this thing might have spread over the interwebs!!!!
The reason why I circled the bottom one in the second pic is because they are the same, but the other one just had one more on the bottom of the list. I STILL BLOCKED THEM ALL! What's worse, here I can see it using pictures of a baby girl and an old couple!!!
I mean, how low can one be?!
Twitter too?! Really?! Come on!!!!
I also checked Tumblr, but it came back empty....so maybe there was an accout at some point, but it got taken down?
Next was YouTube:
I found this, and there's a playlist that has as a title that looks pretty much like the message I got on my phone.
But it leads to three song videos, and the rest of the search list is how to enter facebook codes and similar videos...
I'm not sure what's going on, but I got my eyes open and I decided to share this with you all.
BE CAREFUL SO YOU DON'T FALL FOR STUPID TRAPS LIKE THESE!
IF THIS THING IS FAKE, LET ME KNOW.
BUT FOR NOW, I GOT MY EYES OPEN AND I'M WATCHING!
