"I'm ’bout to kill this guy right here, the old dude." A chime sounds, reminding him that he’s left the keys in the ignition.
He ignores it, and heads across the street to confront the man. Less than a minute: That’s all it takes to broadcast a cold-blooded homicide to thousands of people around the world.
However, I think (not sure) I have discovered a very sophisticated Facebook scam, and wanted to warn blog readers about it -- and also ask if anybody else has been hit by the same thing.
Early last week, I got a Facebook friend request from somebody I didn't know.
However, there was no "send a message" icon, and without that, I just decided to ignore the request -- though, all other things being equal, the idea of an attractive woman as a Facebook friend is not unattractive (!
) to me, as would be the case, I assume, with most guys.
With so many users online you will rarely see the same person twice.
Now, in a foreign land, they race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely.
An investigation into a government cover-up leads to a network of abandoned train tunnels deep beneath the heart of Sydney.
As a journalist and her crew hunt for the story it quickly becomes clear the story is hunting them.
The man filming drives slowly, narrating as he goes.
He isn’t talking to just anyone, though anyone could be watching; he is talking to one woman, whom he blames for what’s about to happen next. "I found somebody I’m ’bout to kill," he says, opening the door.
Blog readers will know that I am a real Facebook fan, and it has been just amazing to see the spread of Facebook among folks working in the government (and in the tech industry serving government).
