[color=red:3iaksko7][b:3iaksko7]FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T ACCESS THE THREAD, THESE ARE THE QUOTES FROM MM.[/b:3iaksko7][/color:3iaksko7] [quote="lee20":3iaksko7]i use bebo and find it great for keeping in touch with friends,i always have had my page on private because i didnt want any weirdos sending me messages but because of a ''technical difficulty'' a while ago,some sick person robbed all my photos from my page and used every single one of them to make a page for themselves,gave myself,my son and all my friends new names,had a picture of myself and my son up as the profile picture and was just going around sendin messages to randomers! i was bloody shocked,i reported it to bebo and they did nothing about it,i didnt even hear back from them,the only reason i got this person to get rid of the page was i went around every page this person had left comments on and told them that this person was lying about who they were,it kind of freaked me out,because they were going around asking people what they thought of my son claiming him to be there own and gave my ds a new name and everything,weird people out there! [/quote:3iaksko7] [quote="pinkirish":3iaksko7]I had a very similar problem with my Bebo page except mine was bombarded with PORN .... and my page was private also and very family orientated, pics of my children and family. So i ended up deleting my page altogether I really don't think people realise just how unsafe Bebo is even with you making your page private, i dread to think what teenagers are looking at or are being sent on there pages ???????????????

Thats very odd, I could be looking for friends and they come up as private so I have no chance of getting onto their pages until they have accepted me as friends.

It is very odd alright. Apparently there was some kind of 'technical glitch' at the time but if it can happend once ... ... ... Anyway I just thought I would let you all know and let everyone make their own decision on it. Personally I'm removing my bebo page as I would hate to think that someone else was using my photos in such a manner!
