    Re: Lets talk about privacy

    I want everyone to realize that I was not creeped out about her calling me. We had a nice visit and I was honored that she wanted to be friendly. It was only after I got off the phone and started rerunning it in my mind that I thought it a little creepy to look so hard for me. Then, the more I thought about it and analyzed my thoughts I questioned my own judgement. I am really honored that you are all worried about me. Its still a few days a way for our meeting and after the meeting, I have several meetings, appointments and stops to make that I am expected to be. For sure, I will let you all know about our lovely new friend and perhaps I can convince her that she would enjoy our company eachmorning

    Well, Ithink that is true. That's why the google search. And of course, I made some real boo boos in public posting that would make it really easy to have gotten my name and address. That's why I posted here to put everyone on alert.

    This is an important comment. It's a sad world when we have to be so concerned about every phone call, every person who just wants to be a nice person, etc. However, it's true that we need to remember that there are some "not so nice folks" out there. I used to be in research, and I can tell you, I can find out more info on one person that you can imagine. Maybe not all of it is valid, but if I were a perpetrator, it's enough to do damage. Take care all of you. I am not a paranoid person, just extremely careful and when something doesn't sound or feel right, it usually isn't!

    Terry, I hate to sound like a broken record, but I, too, am really worried about this meeting. Please take all precautions! Make sure you call or text DH or DD before you leave the restaurant. Set up beforehand that you will call them five minutes after you leave the restaurant, too. Then, before leaving the restaurant, set up your phone so that you can just hit the call button—it's not good to try to dial while driving. Do not sit in your car doing these things, that's the time women are most vulnerable. Also, make sure that Location Services are turned ON in your cell phone.

    In case the lovely lady who called you is reading this, please, Lovely Lady, join the forum and tell us all that we're being silly. Post a few pictures of your quilts. Make yourself real to us. You don't ever have to post again, but you would make a lot of us who care about Terry feel a whole lot better. I'm sorry if this insults you, but the way you approached Terry has set off alarm bells for many of us.

    Maybe they’re a member who isn’t active, just reading posts but not participating. Would that be a lurker?

    While we're talking about privacy, it's good to periodically go through Facebook settings (if you're on FB) to make sure privacy permissions are up to date. Facebook is notorious for making changes. I have mine set to share with friends only, not friends of friends. You'd be surprised what people make public on FB.

    My deceased husband nickname was Dub. My daughter did call and they said it was a matter of the sender's privacy and would not tell her.

    This all just make me think that I have too much personal information about myself on the internet.

My daughter found it creepy and my son said someone is doing a good deed. Reading your post made me think of this. [ATTACH=CONFIG]158212[/ATTACH]

    DH hates going into town. Traffic. And, MIL (who is my usual companion ) is recovering from her pacemaker implant. I think a restaurant is a pretty safe place at lunch time. Its a small parking lot on a busy road. I cannot be unkind and back out on this lunch date. That would hurt my feelings if I were her. God will ride with me. Glad you deleted your addresses too. I even went so far as to delete my state and town.

    Terry, I feel the same as you do. I posted my real name and address in my user notes when my husband passed away and people ask me to post it. I just deleted it. The lady is probably just someone who has read about your good work for the Shriner's and has seen all the beautiful quilts you have made and thinks you would make a wonderful friend. I think the way things have changed and people now find friends because they share the same interest in nice, but myself I don't know that I could go through with the meeting. Have you considered having your husband or someone else go with you? Just be careful, please.

    I also find it really creepy that she hasn't made a profile and spent the time to find your phone number using the information here.
