FACEBOOK “HACK” INFORMATION

A number of our church members have had problems with their Facebook accounts recently. This problem is going around all over the internet affecting people all over the world. Someone is copying people’s names and profile pictures and creating duplicate accounts. If you receive a friend request from someone you are already Facebook friends with, the best thing to do is to report the fake account to Facebook.

To do this, go to the fake account and click on the three little dots next to the word “Message.” Then select the option that says, “Give feedback or report this profile.” From there you can tell Facebook which of your friends is being impersonated. Facebook will investigate and will get rid of the fake account.

It is important to note that your friend’s original account hasn’t actually been “hacked.” A duplicate account has been created in an attempt to scam the person’s friends. If the scammers can convince the person’s friends that the account is real, they can try to convince the friends that the person is in trouble and can try to get the friends to send money online. It is common for scammers to target grandparents by pretending to be their grandchildren.

The best way to protect yourself is to never send money to anyone online unless you have truly verified that the person is who he/she claims to be. And never send money to someone who contacts you on Facebook.

First Sunday (IX)

We encounter Job this month. All four Sundays feature a lesson from the Book of Job. Job and I go way back. We go back to a summer course called “Job.” It was a lecture course, (largely in Hebrew) held in a large auditorium. On the first day that we met the professor took everybody’s picture. He took about a hundred pictures. On the second day, after he had obviously been to One Hour Photo, he laid out all of the pictures on a table. He asked each one of us to find our picture and to write our name on the back and return the picture to the table where we found it. I should have seen where this was going. I was tempted to write somebody else’s name on the back of my picture. I was tempted to write the name David Allen Hubbard, a prominent OT scholar, but I wrote my own name on the back of my picture. Before class began, the professor, Butler was his name, picked up all of the pictures and during class he began asking questions, posing each, (frequently in Hebrew) to the name on the back of each picture. At the conclusion of the course, we were each given our picture to keep, along with a letter grade that each of us had achieved for “Job” written on the back next to our names. It has always been a mystery to me how I got a B.

Mysteries abound when it comes to Job. The book undertakes the mysterious topic of undeserved suffering. Job’s very name is a mystery. It may mean “where is the divine father”; or “hated/persecuted one”; or its meaning may combine both of those meanings. We’ll undertake these mysteries, except for the one about my grade, during October. Have a blessed month!
