Got an email this morning saying we had a new review on Facebook from Ariana. There was a link to go to the review. (I don't click links in emails.) I logged onto Facebook directly and got a second weirdness - they were sending me a verification code at an email address that was all *****'d out except for the first letter and the .net at the end. OK, the email showed up in my inn inbox which is nothing like what they said they were sending it to. Hmmm.
I shut the browser and started over. Log in no problem. No new review. Go back to original email and look at sender. Some place in Indonesia. Hover over the link I'm supposed to click and it's going to somewhere in the UK.
Pay attention out there folks!

Yes pay attention, and even then they may fool you! They're good at it, well some of them are, and getting better.
That being said, I'm really glad computer viruses never became "the end of it all" like we once feared.

Smart move, I don’t follow links or open attachments that I’m not expecting
