Wgs On Facebook

20 posts in this topic

A few weeks ago i recieved a message from facebook stating that xxxxxxxxxxxxx ( a working girl) has accepted my friend invitation, i know that i never requested her as a friend. She is an escort that i have seen previously, her fb account openly shows what she does (escorting).

I contacted her by text & asked her to remove me, she said she had only just that morning opened her fb account & that i had requested her as a friend. After a few texts to & fro she did remove me.

Has anyone else experienced wgs using fb to gain trade.

I was friends with the real persons of three working ladies on FB.

None of these admitted to being escorts.

This was as a false persona myself.

When you sign up to facebook there is an option to 'choose' or search for friends. Many people tick this box quite naiively, not realising it gives facebook permission to search through your email contacts. Clicking without reading a second box sends out friend invites to all those email addresses it matches up to facebook accounts.

I've been the recipient of several 'invites' only to be followed immediately by a panicky email asking me 'please do not accept my invite'.

I keep getting someone suggested as a 'friend' who's been dead for two or three years, don't see much point in asking him, (didn't really like him anyway).

And if you dont want somebody on your 'friends' list then you just delete them.

Could I please ask posters to be careful when posting. Posting details of WG's on facebook where family and friends can be found as well is not too considerate.

Also as a punter when corresponding with escorts always use a throw away email account, don't use the main one you use In your personal life, and the one you signed up to FB with, this goes for escorts too, because you can search for contacts with email accounts, Escorts remember to keep your personal life separate, this Includes sharing FB with your hooker friends, because you all know friends one day can become enemies next day, as some poor victims have found out the hard way. :(

Completely agree - Facebook searches your contacts in your hotmail accounts etc and will send out friend requests automatically. It could easily lead to tears!

i reckon anyone using social media sites who plays in punting is taking a huge risk. they are rubbish at security. I give them a wide berth

As long as your two alias are seperate and don't mix.

I also think if you download the facebook app to your smartphone it checks your telephone contacts and if it finds someone who has put their phone number up it asks if u want to be friends with them.

Offered me to ask to become friends with a WG contact iI had keyed into my contacts as an alias!!!

You have to be carefull with FB

Irrespective of whether one punts or not, this thread gives an eloquent explanation of why anyone who values their privacy should give Facebook a wide berth. Who the devil wants this dreadful company rummaging about among their e-mail contacts?

yeah, tiger benson

whats even stranger is that she requested me about a month after a failed booking attempt (just a mismatch in time availability - no real problem), and I didnt use my real name when i rang her either

coincidence ?

dont really mind as her pictures on fb are hot

So far I have managed to avoid FB except for a few friend requests which I always ignore. But I'm not sure how much longer I will be able to avoid it. Tiger is really fun, love the way she makes fun of her oriental accent (which she does not have) on her website.

I've always refused to do Facebook.

Sometimes makes arranging my regular social life difficult as several friends rely on it but I just don't trust it.

Every few months we hear a news story about them changing privacy settings. Put new info on there today and who knows what they'll do with that data by Easter?

I used my personal (private) phone to access facebook and was shocked to find facebook had downloaded and stored all the numbers into my facebook account. I wouldnt have known it had stolen all my information as I was advised to check.

I never use my phone to access any online accounts anywhere now, and keep my facebook account privacy settings to as private as possible.

I do have a facebook account for Helen too and quite astonished that people add me - or ask me to add them, and they have a fully open account with all their friends family - and sometimes kids listed with photos etc!.

I think guys who enjoy using social networks would be much safer building an online identity for facebook twitter and so on like escorts do. Its amazing what you can find from a Facebook account or email address if you are so inclined!

This can happen if you use the find friends option built into the Facebook app for your smartphone. It will compare contacts stored in your phone with contact details in the Facebook database. Matches are subsequently suggested as people you may know both by the smartphone app and the full site.

I have just set up a FB purely for work, so no friends as yet :D I think on your computer it only plunders the hotmail that you used to sign up with. And to be fair, you have to tell it to find people via hotmail, there's a "find people you might know" button (or something similar).

That's on laptop though, smartphones seem to have no hesitation with merging all your FB and real life contact details.

I set up a completely "false" FB account many years ago using my normal hotmail email address. The reason for this being to show to myself that this type of abuse would eventually happen.

I NEVER use FB, other than to check this "false" account. Incidentally it even got hacked once, from someone in the USA.

Even now, years later, whenever my hotmail email crosses the path with FB users, invites are sent between my "false" account and these people.

I also know that Google are collecting metadata about people and their surfing habits and it wouldn't suprise me if a database is being collated with social networking sites, forums, etc for a sinister purpose!

Facial recognition is also being used to identify people on social networking sites. Be warned.
