Facebook Spam?!

with one comment

Wow, I’m getting back to you sooner than I thought. The thing is, I got a couple of messages on Facebook lately, that aren’t real messages, but probably just Spam. The one above is in German, but it says something like (I don’t want to do a full translation):

you look pretty. So I wanted to use my chance and I hope I have sparked your interest. Maybe you could call me (gives out “her” phone number) I’d appreciate that.

Take care

BTW: I’m moving right now, so maybe you wanna help me (haha, good pun, huh? No…)

So basically this fake woman whom I don’t know (she claims to be a lady named Susanne Lippert) sends me this absolutely cheap message with those terrible pick-up lines. But I don’t see the point why someone would do this. I mean, the usual spam wants to a) hack your computer or b) sell sex drugs to you. But this kind of stuff is just annoying. Like the fake millionaire from Nigeria, you know?

What I did is: I called the number the crazy person behind all that gave out to the public. But no one answered it. But the number exists!

So, what’s your theory on that. Is it just something made up to annoy German Facebook users. Or is it maybe some kind of act of revenge. Like she breaks up with him and then he gives out her phone number?

It just doesn’t make sense. But, I’d definitely love to hear from you on that topic.

Getting ready to move…

Find this picture on TwitPic

Well, there you have it. I’m going to move to my new place near Kiel on Saturday. It’s all very exciting stuff, also because it’s the first time I leave home for a longer time than just a few weeks. It’ll be one year that I’m away from home. I’ll have a new home, hopefully. But yeah, I think the place is nice.

So, I didn’t find the time in the last couple of weeks to keep this thing here updated. The number one reason for that is, that I got my high school diploma and had to party. Understandable, probably. And the number two reason is that I had to prepare for moving of course.

And yeah, that’s it basically. If you want to know what I do in the meantime, come on Twitter and become one of my beloved followers.

Gosh, I’m so melancholic right now, probably because I’m listening to Amy Winehouse. No, I’m not melancholic because of her as a person but because of the song, “To Know Him Is To Love Him”.

Anyways, I’ll try to update the blog when I have moved to my new place successfully. Until then, take care everyone!

Spiderpig gets real!

This is so awesome. A German blogger (or rather sketchblogger) whose posts I adore – his name is Jojo – has created a real-live stunningly authentic spiderpig! Unfortunately it’s not the original spiederpig character from the Simpsons movie, probably because of copyright restrictions. But hey, it’s a spiderpig!

So, check it out for yourself!
