- Producer26/06/2016Social Media Victims A few days ago I wrote a story about internet fraud and what to look out for. Even though I am happy to part of the beBee hive, it does not mean that we drop our guards. I woke up this morning and found in my message box something that I must share...
Comments29/06/2016 #15 Franci Eugenia Hoffman#14 Margaret, I started a hive beBee'd Words and before I finalized my setup, I wanted to change the name to beBee'd Slang. I could not determine how to get rid of beBee'd Words so I left it alone with the intent to learn how to delete it. Well now I see @Diego Quintana Pons is the Administrator. I was confused but now this makes sense. I have not yet encountered Mariana Silva. cc @Javier beBee.28/06/2016 #14 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#7 Awesome Beekeeping! Perhaps, if it troubles you not, Diego Quintana Pons can get off my Invisible Illnesses: Mental Health page. I never put him on as Co-Admin, and we are discussing SUICIDE for mental health. https://www.bebee.com/bee/diego-quintana-pons View more#7 Awesome Beekeeping!

His profile practically says "I worked at "Engineering Company" as an "engineer"/ "I worked at "Computer Inc" as "Computer person." His 1 Recommendation is fake. She volunteers once in a while, making it look as if she's had job positions over time. Fake account, too: https://www.bebee.com/bee/mariana-silva-0JXSfc (with 658 "duped" Followers). We can't let them weave a web into, around, and amongst us. Thank you so much for anything you can do. Thank you Thank you! 💪🏽 Close28/06/2016 #13 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#4 Agree wholeheartedly! We need to keep our big binocular Beez out for one another! I'd like to suggest that this Buzz could be used to bring forward "frauds" so we have a way to keep the Beez from stinging themselves. We definitely need a Beekeeper but the Queen Bee can just say, "I'm too busy. You're smart. Figure out a way to make it easy for me. Collect them all in one place, and then I...."I".... will deal with them all at once! Now go back to Bzzzz ~ " lol28/06/2016 #7 Daniel PazThanks for sharing @Dr. Allen Brown ! It's a fraud attempt. We have investigated the issue and found out the scammer has already deleted his account in beBee. These people usually create a fake account, gather data for a few days and then delete the account.
Unfortunately, this is very common in all social media. beBee has filters to detect this behaviour, but we can not detect all the cases.
Thanks again!27/06/2016 #2 Vincent AndrewYes the frauds are everywhere. On FB and even worse they've got our emails and from where who knows. If a person does not write his/her profile that's a possible red flag. Thanks for sharing this @Dr. Allen Brown View moreYes the frauds are everywhere.
