I was recently asked to ‘share’ a post with all my friends, it was entitled, “AMBER ALERT: NEW Damian Paul Duncan 11 MISSING TN 7/8/09” (web page image on the left).
So I thought that’s a good cause, I shall. So I did!
Then I start getting some complaints back from my Stumble friends.
Asking why I am sharing such rubbish, etc. But the web age associated with the ‘complaint’ was a page I didn’t recognise. I simply replied, “I didn’t share this…sorry”
Then I receive a few more. I was confused.
Than I received some who were ‘un-friending” me!
Then it clicked!
My only recent share was the “Missing Person” website.
I re-looked at my Stumble Favourites and there it was in black and white!
I had shared some ‘spammy’ rubbish.
So apologies to everyone.
But if you receive a similar request, check that it is genuine.
I have written to StumbleUpon to let them know.
