I have never joined or used Facebook.
Starting about three days ago I began receiving many "do you know .... " subject lines from Facebook.
Just curious. What do you suppose triggered this new pattern?
I don't know but when my step daughter joined I started getting invitations to join. She gave them my email address, I was a little upset with her. It was my family/master account. Maybe someone you know did that to you.
Could also be phishing emails. I used to get some before I ever joined. If so I think you can send them to email@example.com to report them. I just joined face book a few months ago after resisting but I have every thing blocked as I only wanted to play my slot games from the one casino gaming company and so far so good. No one tries to contact me or anything. I have nothing against using it that way but I would just rather people email me if they want to send me photos or tell me something. Mary
I have been getting a "friends wants to be your friend" or similar for a long time now so I simply blocked them. No more hassle.
I'm not a facebooker either but have gotten invitations over the years. I 'think' they were maybe often from a GW member, but since I didn't know the GW member's 'real name' I couldn't even say if I knew them or not.
I ended up using the Hotmail Options
and then more options
and then safe and blocked senders
and then blocked Blocked Senders
and added @facebookmail.com to the blocked list.
Voila...no more of them to mess with.
