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):

Hey,
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.
