We have had a number of E-Mails arrive in Staff inboxes today with the following invitation:
[The Facebook details and the identity of the sender have been removed]Check out my photos on Facebook
I set up a Facebook profile where I can post my pictures, videos and events and I want to add you as a friend so you can see it. First, you need to join Facebook! Once you join, you can also create your own profile.
OK. Not difficult to see that this is but what concerns me a little more is that he is targeting the messages to groups of individuals in the school [not very accurately I must say: One person targeted left three years ago]
That having been said the data is no longer on the website, that was taken down a while ago.
The sender's name is not a former Student or member of Staff [although I guess that does not indicate much either as he/she could use any name]
Is anyone else getting this nuisance mail? Is it targeted to your school in a similar way?
I ask because I want to tell our staff:
As I say I am surprised at the attempt to appear genuine by putting current/former Staff in the body of the message.
- To delete the messages without opening them.
- That they are Spam and as such should not be considered as genuine in any way.
- Other schools/organisations are getting these messages and thus allay any fears that we specifically are being targeted.
