    Free iPad Giveaway ---------- NOT
    I do have a new iPad - but I am not giving it away!

    I have received a couple messages this morning that my FaceBook account was broadcasting a bogus give-away - from "me." It appears that someone has hacked into my FB account - just checked and it is listed as "Suspended" - which is probably a favor (to me, anyway).

    So, why am I posting this? There are a few of you ABWers who routinely correspond via FaceBook. I'm not going to fool with FB right now, so if you need to contact me, either PM here at ABW or use regular email. (bill [at] girlychecks [.] net )

    BTW - the iPad is a really cool tool.

    Sorry to hear this happened. Wonder if this happens often with FB?

    So the announcement that you will be giving away that plane is not real?

    Bahumbug!

    So, Bill, where'd that $2,500 "shipping fee" I sent for delivery of the plane actually go??

    Oh man that sucks! My husband Iain also had his FB account hacked a few months ago. What a pain that was.

    Interestingly enough, I was going to post a new thread about our new iPad give away that we ARE doing on FB through Eyeglasses123. I'll post it separately in case anyone is interested. That one IS legit
