Beware Of Twitter User Name Identity Theft

Strangest thing happened to me the other night while I reviewed Google alerts that watch my name, company name and social networking user names. I like to keep an eye out for strange happenings so I’m not blind sided by something. The Google alert for my Twitter username picked up one of my tweets.

I thought that strange so I investigated. Upon clicking the link, I was directed to this Twitter site:


Looks like my Twitter page, but it’s not. After I reviewed the tweets, I decided to delete a couple then tried to logon to my Twitter account. Suddenly, IE security kicked in, alerting me to the account information phishing scam.


Seems that someone‘s after unsuspecting Twitter users. So, time for all of you IE users to update your web browsers to the latest versions. I’m glad I did.
