The Facebook Hoax

Do Not Accept A Friend Request From A Chrisopher Davies and Jessica Davies

DO NOT ACCEPT A FRIEND REQUEST FROM CHRISTOPHER DAVIES OR JESSICA DAVIES THEY ARE HACKERS....PLEASE TELL EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST BECAUSE IF SOMEONE ON YOUR LIST ADDS THEM THEY WILL BE ON YOUR LIST TOO....HE WILL FIGURE OUT YOUR COMPUTER IP AND ADDRESS...SO PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE, EVEN IF YOU DON......T ......CARE FOR THEM , CAUSE IF HE HACKS THEM , HE HACKS YOU

Obviously, the person who started the hoax does not know much computer hacking, nothing about computer hacking, or did this for the fun of it.

Currently, it is not possible to obtain your computer's ID and address by accepting a Facebook friend request. The computer ID and address the hoax is referring to is your computer name and Internet Protocol (IP) address.

An IP address is a number that is assigned to every computer or device that goes on the internet. This number is used to locate a computer or device on the internet, so other computers or devices can connect to it. It is like a telephone number. Every connected telephone has a number, so if you need to reach someone on his/her telephone; you just dial that person’s number.

Already, approximately 185,087 Facebook users have shared this hoax. This means that millions of Facebook users have seen this hoax.
