Anyone ever had their Facebook account hacked? I have.

This morning my friend, M, phoned me to say that she thought she had been having a chat session with me on Facebook only to realise she was chatting with someone who had hacked into my Facebook account and impersonated me. The person claiming to be me said I (and my family)had been mugged while on holiday in London and had all our credit cards and money stolen. They then asked her if she could send money to help. M suddenly realised it was a hoax and advised Facebook.

Facebook promptly disabled my Facebook page. Bah humbug. I'm the victim and I get cut. Gotta be a better system than that.

I'm hoping that all the lovely old friends I've recently renewed contact with on Facebook won't think I have vanished off the face of the earth.

You poor thing - that is crappy. A hacker wouldn't get much out of my Facebook account. I hardly ever look at it and I only have about 10 friends (I cannot be bothered with the whole friend thing)
