Have you been seeing odd messages or having weird conversations with your “friends” on social media sites? Aside from the possibility that your friend is a freak, it’s possible that their account has been hacked, possibly by Nigerian scammers asking for money.

So the next time some “friend” asks for money online, double check with them through other means (email, cell phone, instant msg, etc.) that they are who they say. Or be careless and get taken for a ride. And while you’re being cautious, watch this hilarious, slightly potty-mouthed video and remember it next time someone you barely know wants to add you on Facebook.
