(Original answer removed, I see he’s already deleted it). But still I’m sorry, this sort of “friend” sucks.

Wow….I cannot believe he did that. That is so incredibly rude, unprofessional, and just all around appalling. Did you say he deleted it the status? If not, there is a way to remove/report tags on Facebook. And good call on not welcoming him into your home anymore. A true friend would never do such a thing. Hopefully your DH agrees!!!

I can’t believe someone would do that!! That is horrible! I’m glad he deleted it but that doesn’t excuse what he did in any way! I think calling his company is a great idea, and whether or not you have a screenshot I still think they will look into it and he will be reprimanded. Hopefully he deleted it quickly enough that not too many people saw it!

So.. I don’t know what your settings are like on facebook,  but whenever someone tags me in a post, I get an email with a mini-screenshot preview type thingy (technical terminology).

DId you get one of those emails you can show his boss(es) as proof?

First of all I would post something about clearly not understanding privacy and that he’s clearly not a professional and that you would not trust him with your money. Secondly I would speak to his manager As a ” prospective client” and talk about what he did with your private information. Furthermore I would tell this tool to fuck right off.

@anonbride13:  Oh holy hell. THIS is why I have my FB set so I have to approve every tag. I mean, it sucks when I’m somewhere fun & the manfriend tags me and I can’t approve it until I get home (cause I have a “dumb” phone), but it’s totally worth it because my friends can be stuuuuuuupid and might do something like this. 

I’m so sorry. I am HORRIFIED that someone would do that to their “friend”. Honestly, the “doesn’t follow social cues” thing makes me wonder if there’s a bigger issue there. In any case, you are very right to inform his superiors. He will be privy to a LOT of very private information and could get his company into very big trouble.

First and foremost… (( HUGS )) to you

And I want to say I am sorry for all of this… but particularly the loss of your Mother.  That no doubt makes life harder than you deserve it to be.

As for “the guy”… I GET IT


This is vendictive if you ask me (he wrote that post for his own gains, and tagged you guys so he’d somehow shame you in to dealing with him and his financial business)

He is a low bellied scummy dirt bag if there ever was one.

Friendship / Relationship / Acquaintance Status… OVER DONE WITH

Buddy you are DEAD TO ME… NOW !!

You absolutely should report him to his Employer.  That type of action is NOT ETHICAL.  One working in the Financial Industry is not ever meant to bandy about one’s PRIVATE Financial Info without a care to their privacy


Sadly, your Hubby has learned a valuable lesson…

MONEY IS PRIVATE… and shall not be discussed / shared with anyone you know… as sadly, some folks will feel it is within their right (position) to judge you for it, what you have, what you do with it, how you choose to spend it etc.


I can tell this has you really upset… and stirred up all sorts of memories for you… I mean really in some ways the money is sort of “tainted” isn’t it… it is nice to have it in that your Mom meant for you to have it… but at the same time, it reminds you that she is gone… and NO AMOUNT OF MONEY can fill that void. 

After all it is ONLY money.

This guy has made that pain only worse… cause he sees this money as a conduit to you and a possible gain for him.  He is literally jealous of what you have, and demanding that he have a some share / say in that.  Consequently, he has made the money seem even dirtier.  Sick BASTARD that he is.

(( HUGS ))

On another note…

This is precisely the reason you won’t find me on FaceBook.  It is just too juevenile for me (reminds me of Junior High at the best of times)… everyone wanting to know, comment on, criticize everyone else’s lives / choices.

I can do without that.

I prefer to maintain some control over what I want to share, and with whom.

So no FaceBook for me.

(Honestly all I ever read about on WBee is how FaceBook has hurt another Bee… I get that it can be a great communication tool… but it only takes one JERK … of which in this world there seem to be too many… to turn it all around and make it a God-Awful piece of media that can horribly injure someone.  I am not into risking even that one time)

Hope this helps (even a wee bit)

Yes. Please report him and get him fired. That was unprofessional and a huge violation of privacy. I would definitely cut off all communication from him moving forward.
