Well, it’s making the rounds once again. Friends sending you Facebook messages to warn you that they received another friend request from you.
It’s great to have friends watching your back, isn’t it?!?
The only trouble is, in this case, your friend is most likely LYING to you.
You see, your friend never received a new friend request from you. Nothing is wrong with your account, and no, you haven’t been hacked.
What they did receive was basically a chain letter, with absolutely no value. One that is dangerously counterproductive. One that turns good people into blatant liars.
So please, don’t stop trying to help your friends stay out of trouble, but DO go about it wisely.
Here are a few tips we have for you:
- Keep your friend list hidden to keep the bad guys from targeting them. Info on how to do that can be found here: Protect Your Friends
- If you’re at all concerned that your account may be compromised, change your password immediately.
- Be sure your social media accounts are being monitored for privacy risks (personal information, geotagging, etc.) and reputational risks (references to drugs or alcohol, violence, foul language, or other online misconduct). IDShield offers comprehensive monitoring of your most personal data and alerts if someone is trying to use it. (Not to mention industry-leading consultation and full restoration by licensed private investigators if anything happens.) Sign up for IDShield here: Protect Yourself
- DON’T LIE TO YOUR FRIENDS, even if you have the best intentions! Watch The Boy Who Cried Wolf by Aesop just in case you need a reminder of the harm that can come from seemingly innocent lies.

Rose & MeShawn a.k.a. The 2 Tropical Gals
The 2015 Templeton Chamber of Commerce Ambassador of the Year Award was presented to the mother/daughter duo of Rose Marie Tajalle Hunt & MeShawn Tajalle Hunt, Independent Risk Management Agents with Harvard Risk Management Corporation. The award was presented on July 18, at the Templeton Chamber of Commerce’s annual Installation Gala, held at the Portola Inn in Atascadero. Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian was also on hand to present the Gals with certificates of recognition from both the California State Senate, and California Legislature
The Gals’ quick smiles and island warmth have become a regular feature at chamber mixers, ribbon cuttings, and special events promoting the beautiful little town of Templeton. Whether it’s greeting members & guests at the check-in table or helping move & set up the tables for an event, the Gals are always ready to help wherever they’re most needed.
This Ambassador stuff comes easy to these Gals though. Originally from Piti, Guam, Rose & MeShawn have spent a good part of their lives sharing stories of the small island they hail from, and its significance to the United States.
Join the Gals at one of the monthly Templeton Chamber of Commerce mixers, and don’t forget to RSVP for the upcoming business education seminar on business fraud and identity theft, facilitated by the 2 Tropical Gals!
