Wow, that is weird.  How well did she know you before?  Either her account got hacked into, or she’s trying to flirt with you.  Either way, just block her.  I wouldn’t bother trying to communicate further if you’re no longer in contact.  I’d prob just be too awkward.

I’m pretty sure she’s been hacked.

Yeah, I’m thinking she was probably hacked as well.

I bet money it’s been hacked – I have a friend on my msn like that – it occasionally pops up links like “hey look at these crazy pictures from you last night” etc.

Yeah she probable has a virus. I’d block her and don’t respond to her IMs. A few of my co-workers (no longer with the company, but I never removed them from my IM list) got a virus and randomly I got IMs from them that said: “Click here for my nude pics.” It was actually kind of hilarious.

@UpstateCait: is it through yahoo? Perhaps her account was hacked. I get those all the time from random people and one time I was getting them from a friend’s account that she hadn’t logged into for awhile and porn bots took over.

Oh yeah, block her and I’d send her a FB message to let her know.  I’ve had it happen with friend’s with old email addresses they don’t use any longer… they had no idea.

(still LOLing at the lollipop!) 🙂

@UpstateCait: Definitely hacked. It’s a very clever trick, people are getting more wise about spam, so most hackers know not to send out blatant spam messages. Rather, they make it look like an IM that could potentially be from a friend. If you’re a girl, you’re likely to open a “hi” message from another girl you know. If you’re a male, you might be more inclined to respond to a wink or a a/s/l message. Hackers don’t know who the messages are going to, so they will try multiple variations. Let her know she’s been hacked so she can change her password.
