The followin' is a public service announcement, paid for by...
Hey Peepers! You willin' to toss a few toonies my way to pay for this here pubic service announcement, I'm makin'?
Well how 'bout one tooney, then?
Maybe a quarter or two?
Still no? Still?
Well then, uh...
I know! A few treats. I'm sure you can spare a few treats. Bonus treats, we'll call 'em
What do you MEAN you just gave me treats? What do you MEAN?
Er-hmm. The followin' is a public service announcement. APPARENTLY, it's totally free.
Paid for by no one but me.
And now for the announcement: Okay kitties out there. Kitties and doggies and ferrets and anyone else to whom this might pertain. Do you have a fan page on Facebook? You do? Well if so, please be aware there are scammers out to get us four-legged social media stars. Scammers like the "Restricted Account Information" and the "Business Account Maintenance Standards" pages. These are NOT real pages, my friends. They're fake. Fake as fake can be. Fake as the diamonds on a burlesque dancer's short dress.
NEVER MIND HOW I KNOW 'BOUT BURLESQUE DANCERS' ATTIRE.
But back to the business at paw. These SCAMMERS are taggin' hundreds of pages, pretendin' to represent Facebook and/or META security and whatnot. They tag you in a post and say that if you don't click on the link they provide within 24 hours or five days or the like, you'll lose all access to your fan page.
Whatever you do, DO NOT CLICK.
Now I don't actually know what will happen if you do click on their links 'cause I never have, but rest assured, IT'S GONNA BE BAD.
Instead of clickin' on their links, report 'em and block 'em. Report and block. REPORT and BLOCK. That's the best thing to do.
Do what I say AND do what I do.
This mornin', I awoke to a notification from one of these scammers who had tagged my fan page. Another notification. The THIRD one in less than three weeks! And I'm sick and tired of this nonsense. Sick and tired, to be sure.
So remember, my pals, if your fan page gets tagged by one of these scammers, you know what to do: REPORT 'em and BLOCK 'em and if you happen to find their actual address...
Well used kitty litter makes a wonderful gift.
Really WELL used kitty litter, that is.
Remember to mask up, too.
