ALERT: Our Facebook Page Was Stolen

UPDATE, Monday July 07, 2014 : WE GOT OUR PAGE BACK! THANK YOU EVERYONE!

To all our dear followers,

We regret to inform you that our Facebook page was a victim of a phishing scam this morning. We got a notification informing us that we are getting VERIFIED AS A PAGE . We are normally very careful, but the notification looked official (see image at the bottom of this post) and we did not suspect anything wrong because the notification came from within the Facebook page.

PO profile
This is the screen shot of our stolen Facebook page.

UNFORTUNATELY the said notification was actually a trick to turn over ownership of the page. The scammer somehow found a way to game the system. So  Positive Outlooks is now being run by someone else whose intent is less than noble. The phishing scam will not affect you or our website, ONLY our Facebook Page was attacked. You are safe here! We hope you don’t leave us and miss our inspirational postings that will resume very soon. .

UPDATE: The scammer after stealing our page change our Positive Outlooks’ URL from https://www.facebook.com/positiveoutlooks into https://www.facebook.com/positiveoutlookblog

We will keep everyone posted. For now we have decided to remove the link to Report An Issue With Facebook Pages until we have tried all legal means possible.

Thank you so much,

Art Galindo

  2. This is sad…I enjoyed getting your notes even living this far away, why do people have to ruin something so good??? Should we all report the page and then delete ourselves from it?

  3. Have you seen their latest post? I think they’re throwing it in your face for you to “find the courage to let go of what you can’t change”.
    What kind of garbage is that? I’m going to report them and share this on my facebook wall!

  4. I hope this site goes back to the way it is….How dare somebody take credit where credit should not be taken…sorry they couldn’t think of it first….I always look forward to your Beautiful quotes…Karma has their address…

  5. I just followed the instruction and pasted the text to Facebook Report Issue page. I hope you’ll be able to take it back. God bless!

  6. I just posted a link to this hacking alert to the now fake positive outlooks facebook page. I’m sure they will delete it, but if we all bombard them with it, if anything just to let other people know that it isn’t the real page anymore.

  7. I have enjoyed your quotes here and found many very helpful. .What should we do or not do now? I hope you can get back on track for us all, and yourself.
