score one for paranoia and just plain common sense

OK - who was our 7th grade teacher, punk?

Here is a story to warm the hearts of even the most cynical infosec professional… When Tracy got an unexpected Facebook chat from a classmate she had not spoken to in the last 30 years asking her to take a survey, she got suspicious and quizzed the “classmate” about some events in their common past.  When the “classmate” couldn’t answer and abruptly dropped the connection, Tracy knew that her intuition saved her from an attempted scam.  I wish all users were as on the ball as Tracy!  Read the story at Sophos’ (excellent) Naked Security blog.
