Today, my Facebook was hacked. The hacker messaged all my online friends, explaining that "I" was overseas, had run out of money and needed help. Not one person cared enough to respond. I guess the hacker picked the wrong target. FML

that's a good and a bad thing

mostly bad because shows what kind of friends OP has

No it doesn't. Who's gonna up & send you money via western union or some other service just because you send messages on FB claiming you're stranded. People aren't completely retarded. Even your immediate family would at least want to hear your voice telling them your situation & then they would buy your plane ticket, not just throw you a random sum of money. This shows OP's friends & family aren't complete morons that buy into bullshit stories before using their brains to assess the situation. Good on them for being cautious.

Actually a good this. OP should be glad none of his friends fell for it.

^ Killer Bee is awesome :)

true. they should've at least replied "I know this is a scam" or something.

Wouldn't it be suspicious if you can afford to go on fb rather than finding a phone when you're stranded and out of money?

maybe it's a good thing because your friends knew you went overseas?

YDI for having "congealed milk" written in Japanese characters for a password. Thats the first one I try when breaking into FB

good to know I'm not the only one, 52! :)

these scams are very obvious ur friends probably knew it was a stupid hacker

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

Clearly you don't either

...and how have you come to the conclusion that I have no friends... you sir, are a fool!!

Hmm for some reason I cracked up when I read this.

53- well for one you spell using numbers. That right there makes you a looser.

I think you mean loser?... smartass

dude don't be so mean if u ain't got nothin nice to say then don't say anything

:) cheers to that

98, did your "mommy" tell you that?

98 - Uh.. dude your a dick

Are you five years old?

What's the neneenene for ?

They knew it was a trap!

Admiral Ackbar: It's a trap! Also, did anyone notice that this FML and the one above have the same location?

umm.. Victoria is a big place mate, what's your point?

The world is an even bigger place, dude. What's YOUR point?

Exactly! I think what happened here is that all of your friends figured it was fake and didn't respond. I know I would have not even bothered to open it and just deleted it. Stop jumping to conclusions OP. >_>

I acually had an email like this sent to me I didn't reply, it looks way too much like a trick

Go get yourself some new friends.

Like a kangaroo.

You're missing the point, #4. Op's friends were smart enough to not respond to the Scammer's message on her account.

So... you mean he should find dumber friends who will believe an "I'm overseas and need you to send me money." message?

Your friends were smart enough to know it was a scam. Be glad you have smart friends. Be worried that your friends might see this and realize that they have a dumb friend.

yeah. maybe they didn't respond cuz you're on facebook oversees and running out of money? that makes perfect sense

Yeah, and I don't know many people who would buy a one way ticket, planning to return to where they came from.

i agree ive seen this happen to an old grade school teacher of mine ppl hack emails for moolah

Or maybe, people saw that story on the national news and knew it was fake.

Or maybe your friends are not as dumb as you think they are and they knew you weren't overseas... Suck it up.

They probably knew it was fake. I got an email from "my dad" claiming he and my family were trapped in Scotland, needed money because theirs had been stolen, and somehow had no access to a police station or a phone but somehow had access to a computer. I called my dad laughing and saying, "You bitches went to Scotland without me???" and he had no idea what I was talking about. The funny thing was I was the one who was actually overseas at the time.

could be they all knew it was fake. I've seen that scam before so I would not respond to it.

I feel like the term "hacked" is being misused here, and this was all actually your fault.

no it wasn't this happened to my moms email. she never logs on other people's computers or anything like that and uses her own wifi.

That must invalidate all cases of phishing and poor practice involved by the OP instantly. Someone call Facebook HQ and tell them there's a hacker on the loose.

lol ikr. he opened a strange message on facebook stating that he could grow his dick in 1 week but he did that from his own computer on his own wifi so hes safe right? nooot! some people would need an internet security 101 class.. would make the web alot safer
