Social Network Spam

imgres

Received my first social network spam, a mail through Bebo’s internal messaging system..

‘hey gareth i just noticed ur profile.. i might be visitin friends where ur from… i have more pics on my cam site.. its ‘homepagecam.us/cutie223′ …im ussually online. msg me sometime on there…’

Social networks are in one sense eminently spamable (hell in a sense they are spam generators), and in another – permissions, implicit trust networks, reputations, tagging – are highly spam resistant. It will be interesting to see how simple spam, and far more sophisticated potential networked ‘advertacks’ evolve. How long till we see offers of cash for product recommendations or access to FOF lists of popular social networkers..Or is this happening already?

  3. Lol.

    I’m in New Zealand.

    I’m VERY wary of links like that, and when I got that link, I went to it, but stopped it and googled it incase. Lucky I did. 🙂

    Anyway, I told that person to keep their bullshit.
    The name was like, chelsea~.

    I’m used to it though. Get a lot of this on MySpace too.

    Aira Y is the new one. [homepagecam.us/candicecam]

    AVOID. Oh Im Irish too. Seems to be hitting us the worst.

  10. LOL

    hey marc i just noticed ur profile.. i might be visitin friends where ur from… i have more pics on my cam site.. its [homepagecam.us/cutie223] …im ussually online. msg me sometime on there…

    im glad i googled it haha

  11. Ya just got that message too and as everyone else i totally thought i was in!! BOLLOX Mine was Shepry L and i got it an hour ago

    Imagine now we’ll see a load a these different chicks everywhere we live. Ha then we’ll regret not replyin

  12. “OMG ID THIS A FREAK OR WHA WHO IS IT??I GOT IT FROM MY BEBO AND I GOOGLED IT ASWELL THEN THIS CAME UP FUCKING WERIDO!!”

    what are you on about sarah? it’s just spam…

    first time for me to get one anyway. i don’t know exactly how it was done because i cannot send mail to other bebo users unless they are one of my friends

    anyway as soon as bebo restricts mail to only friends this sort of spam will stop. click on the sender’s profile and “report abuse” to let bebo know.

  13. Hey, thanks for the warning i got this yesterday. Just thought i’d say the name has been changed to ‘annanet’ now and not that cutie one…Bebo must have done somthing about it =P

  14. jesus christ lads… looks like were all gettin laid, happy days! My profile says i’m from… castleballastonesbar, so she’l have to take a few mushrooms and a couple of tabs in order to find my home town seeing as it doesn’t exsist.

    In fairness she was v hot, i thought my luck was in untill i looked at the site and realised… i’m not that lucky, somethings wrong here! suppose it shows how gulliable (and horny!) us irish can be.

    Its like… “hi, i’m a random hot bitch, seen u’re profile on bebo.. i’m going to vist me cousin’s in knocknamora in a while, so i might as pop round to yours for a ride while i’m there, sound so… see ya later 🙂 ”

    In hindsight, how the fuck do we fall for it. And though some won’t admit it…. isn’t it quite dissapointing to find out it’s a hoax, were a sad bunch! apparently the best things in life are free…. we just need your credit card details. load o bollox!

  15. hey tanx 4 de heads up, just like de rest of them i taut der was sumtin fishey bout it so i typed it into a search engine and guess wat came up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! tanx bud

  16. guess what dudes they av changed d site an d name again!just like u lot i thought i was n der happy days!den goodled and wat bitterly disappointed but thanks for the look out ya!

  20. Ah f/ck I’m just one in a long line! I noticed it’s seems like everyone is a lad, and some of us including me thought they were gonna meet a fit girl!-I’m only human. I say we all club together and hunt down these f/ckers. bebo is supposed to be a safe place-[homepagecam.us/cutie223]-your days are numbered!- hand me my glock! I’m angry now but i’m also realising i’m one gullable f/ck!

  21. i got a sililar message two days ago, except that i got one from annanet. i’m from australia. I decided that i was going to hack in to see the persons bebo account, because its a private account, and i’m not very open to spam. Just lucky i don’t sign up to sh*t like that, and i always look for an alternative to entering in credit card details..

  22. hey eddie i just noticed ur profile.. i might be visitin friends where ur from… i have more pics on my cam site.. its [homepagecam.us/candicecam] …im ussually online. msg me sometime on there… =)
