OMG!!!! You won't believe what this seventy-two-year-old grandmother did!

Mom was clickjacked on Facebook. The fake "video" is embarrassing, NSFW, and clearly spam. But she can't see it on her timeline or in her news feed in order to remove it herself. How do we remove it so it doesn't show up in all her friends' newsfeeds? [more inside]

I'm really not in London...

Help! My Gmail and Facebook accounts have been stolen and the passwords changed. Someone I know just called to tell me that he got an email saying that I'm in London in a hospital and need money immediately. What do I do?

What are these girls up to?

Every couple of weeks a different ~20 YO girl with a provocative picture, young enough to be my daughter, will try to friend me on Facebook. This squicks me out and I can't hit the ignore button fast enough. I can't help but think it's a precurser to some kind of scam. What are these girls up to?
