In the past seven days, I've been warned no less than 30 times not to accept anything from Fabrizio Brambill.

You're familiar with Mr. Brambill, correct?

Well me neither, but apparently Brambill's deal is that he likes to contact people with his foto of him and a dog:

 Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept anything from Fabrizio Brambilla. He has a foto with a dog. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your messanger account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. Forwarded as received. Hold your finger down on the message. At the bottom in the middle it will say forward. Hit that then click on the names of those in your list and it will send to them.

What's that? Excuse me? A foto?

Do you mean photo, you spell-checking American facebookers?

The warning goes on to say that Brambill is a "hacker."

God Forbid!

He supposedly can hack you! (It doesn't say he'll hack your computer, it says you'll be hacked! (I think we all know how uncomfortable that can be!)


Stop being a lemming and passing along these types of messages, just because someone told you!

They're fake. Fake. Fake. When you get messages like this, an easy thing to do is go to and check it out. You can save a lot of people from some needless worry.

Now, if Brambill (Or one of dozens of names used in versions this B.S. message) actually hacks my computer, what would he find? Secrets of the FBI, the CIA, or Walmart?

Nope. He'd probably discover that I have a lot of bills, a checking account with a current balance of $114.23  that I bounce a check on about every two years, and the starting line-up for the 11-year-old EHT baseball team that I coached 11 years ago.

Wait! he'd also find my grandmother's secret Apple Cake recipe!

Don't hack me, bro'!
