We’ve been notified that Charlotte is ramping up her ‘tunnelling’ activities again.
By ‘tunnelling’ she actually means ‘violating innocent citizens’ privacy by searching through their Facebook timelines, checking out their friend lists, and creating ridiculous fantasies about them, which she then publishes as fact’.
We realise that most people don’t expect their Facebook accounts to be invaded in this way, and aren’t really prepared for it. After all, isn’t the point of Facebook to share things?
It is, but most of us don’t want unscrupulous people like Charlotte and the other Hoaxtead hawkers poking through our pictures and friend lists, turning our innocent holiday pictures into ‘evidence’ of our sinister involvement in shadowy non-existent ‘death cults’, for example.
If there were some way to reach each of Charlotte’s potential targets and warn them, we’d do it; but part of the problem is that she seems to pull her next victims’ names out of her well-padded arse.
So we’re offering this information in hope that anyone even remotely connected with Christ Church Primary School, Fitzjohn’s Primary School, New End Primary School—indeed, any of the schools named in this hoax—will read this info’, take immediate action to protect themselves, and pass the information along to anyone they suspect might be in Charlotte’s sights. Working together, you can protect yourselves and each other.
Keep your Facebook account between you and your friends
We strongly recommend this post on How to Lock Down Your Facebook Account for Maximum Privacy and Security.
In particular, you’ll want to look carefully at your privacy settings:
Hide your Friends list!
In addition, you’ll want to hide your Friends list from anyone you don’t already know. By default, everyone can see who your friends are in the Friends section of your timeline. To change this setting:
- Go to your timeline.
- Click on the Friends unit (under your cover photo).
- Click the Edit button at the top of the page and use the audience selector to choose who can see your friend list on your timeline.
- Remember that mutual friends will still be visible to others.
Please—help yourself, help one another, and stay safe.
