Yeah, I looked at Angelyne’s MySpace profile . And added her as a friend.
And then looking at her friends, I was suckered in by “Jenny Two Face’s” message: “i found kanye west moms profile,” and clicked the given link. I’m morbid like that.
Although I was already logged in, I ALMOST fell for the request to log in again. Me, a dude who thinks most people who get suckered by online scams must be a little dim (at least to the ways of the internets).
Alas, I would have been duped, if it weren’t for the warning message that appeared, courtesy the genius coders at Firefox. Too bad I can’t say the same for Jenny Two Face.
The lesson? Be extra careful clicking on links you find on MySpace, even if from a friend.
If anyone is wondering how Alicia Keys and other professional MySpace pages could have been hacked, this may lead to an answer.
