This stuff happens everyday. Yes a sexy profile picture will fool many people into giving away their hearts, sex, money, or friendship. You do have to be careful though. There is one message circulating whether true or not, I don’t know, of a very sexy young girl posting scantily clad photos of herself to get thousands of friends on Facebook. One psychopaths was able to get her address, and brutally raped and murdered her. I think FB also gave 2 of my computers a virus. Recently, it sent all of my friends on it advertisements about weight loss like they were from me. It has so many security issues, I am about done with it. It did help me contact some childhood friends though.

I find this video interesting for lots of reasons. Mainly because this is what sociopaths can do so well. Not saying this woman is a sociopath but you get idea of what we are up against
