A Google search for a Facebook customer support phone number may direct users to a number set up by fraudsters, according to NPR.

 

The fraudulent number, 844-735-4595, appeared not only as top result in a Google search, but also as a featured snippet -- meaning Google highlighted it in a box at the top of its search results, NPR reported.

 

NPR engaged phone fraud specialist Pindrop to investigate.

 

A Pindrop researcher called the number, posing as a Facebook customer who had been locked out of his account. He was instructed to purchase an iTunes card from Walmart or Target, and then to call the number again and hand over the card number and security code. He then would receive a password to unlock his account.

 

Thanks

Hey there! I tried to post this a week ago, but that post seems to have disappeared into the nether reaches of the forums. So I guess I'll try again! Before I start, though, I have to warn you this will most likely be a terribly long-winded and dull post. Probably best to have a bowl of popcorn handy.

 

To begin with, I'm basically just a longtime lurker who finally mustered up the courage to type out a proper introduction for myself. I'm a 22-year-old male with a lot to think about and not a whole lot to say. To say I dislike social interaction would be a gross understatement; the thought alone of leaving my house is essentially the equivalent of submitting myself to the guillotine. Not an ideal mindset to have when people are *gasp* everywhere.

 

I grew up extremely shy and introverted. I constantly wanted to skip school just to avoid other kids, despite actually enjoying school itself. At first it was my fears of “embarrassing myself” or “saying the wrong thing” that persuaded me to keep my mouth shut at all times, but over time I developed an acute sense of self-loathing and perceived inferiority. In other words, my best would never be good enough when compared to other people.

 

All of these thoughts and fears persisted even through high school, where they successfully sabotaged any notions I had of dating, making friends, and just socializing in general. Because of this, I was extremely awkward, socially unconfident, and probably even standoffish. I began to scrutinize and criticize myself more than ever, and became obsessed with every personal flaw I could find. I became absolutely convinced that I was the most boring, unattractive, unappealing, and worthless guy out there, no matter what I tried to tell myself on the contrary.

 

Starting college made absolutely no difference whatsoever, from a social standpoint. I could go entire days without saying a word to anyone. Professors, classmates, really cute girls. Didn't matter. My brain refuses to function around other people, regardless of who they are (but especially really cute girls). My schedule literally became: leave home, go to school, come home, do homework, sleep, repeat. No over-exaggerating there either. I spent weekends alone or with family, and that was it.

 

I survived three semesters of this until I eventually hit my breaking point. I finally admitted to myself that I could not continue to avoid social interaction and group work in my upcoming courses, and this realization terrified me to no end. So what did I do to cope with it? I did the only thing I knew how to do: I dropped out and avoided it altogether. Problem-solving at its finest.

I have always been picked on for being super quite. I have been called a loser, slow, weird, dumb ECT. In high school I had my on and off moments, when I was considered a social butterfly. I loved talking with so many people of different backgrounds and social standpoint, it's something that made me feel alive and truly human. It wasn't until a four year relationship and traumatic episodes, that I have suddenly fallen back into my childhood box again. 

 

It has been 3 years since the relationship, and I have lost all my friends due to my depression and lack of ability to socialize. For the past year I spent almost everyday lying emotionless in my bed, only to go to work or help a family member in a crisis, but even then I feel like my presence only made it worse. 

 

I have attempted to go out on a few accations, only to find my inability to effectively and vocally communicate, to be nearly impossible. I feel like I have lost touch with life itself. The empathetic, sincere, loving person that I use to be, that I built myself up to be seems to have vanished. 

 

I have been struggling trying to find human connection and I can't decipher anymore who is trying to hurt me and who is actually sincere. I feel lost in a good. Even in this moment I can feel my face burning and tightening, and pressure behind my eyes, because it pains me. 

 

I see people walking around and I want to badly to have a conversation. I want so badly to tell the person I see sad to smile. I want so bad to be that person I knew, who could make someone's day, but I haven't had that strength or confidence. Instead of been scared, intimidated, and slowly destroying my world around. I even quit my job that I loved so much, because people were saying that I was heartless and insensitive, when inside I was dying to speak again and have a conversation, and connect with someone. I am tired of being this way. I am tired of my speech slurring, my mind catching up until after the fact, the fuzzy hazzy daze, the lump in my throat, the nauseated pit in my gut, and the guilt I feel for not speaking or knowing what to say. I don't want to be a negative person to people, I want to be the happy person people used to see me as. The one who was able to speak. I want that side of me back.

Hi. I joined because lately I've been feeling very frustrated with my innability to make friends. I've never had a group of friends and I only have one friend I regularly talk to. I have just started university and previously I had thought that this problem would go away once I got out of highschool, but I can see that I am on my way to again spending years of my life in the same place without anyone getting to know me. 

I feel like I can't show myself to others; when I am in a group of people I can barely get a word in and when I do it's to say the most generic things, it's like I don't even have a personality, or at least not one that I can consistently show to others. 

I have not been super distressed about this, I have always thought that friendships would happen eventually, that I would get better eventually, but even though I am making progress, it just feels like I am being left behind; I don't have anyone to share things with, no one to be there for me and I just don't want this to be my life. I hope being here can help me get better.
