Fake Accounts

Ugh, so I started my week by discovering someone had create a fake account in my name on Twitter (and possibly other social media sites) and was sending inappropriate messages to some of my female friends.

I feel incredibly lucky, however, because the people who were contacted knew it wasn’t me. It’s nice to know my reputation is such that anything out of the ordinary is a red flag to the people I interact with online. That’s a good feeling.

So if you are contacted by an account that looks like me, please be careful. The fake account misspelled my last name (had an extra “s” in it). Other red flags would include rude behavior or inappropriate comments. And if you are contacted by someone pretending to be me, please report it to the admin of whichever platform you’re on.

Thanks to everyone for having my back. I appreciate it.
