Some Jerk Stole One Of My Facebook Photos And Used It As Their Own Profile Pic
What the heck is going on these days? I got a phone call from a friend that asked if I knew a certain person. The name didn't sound familiar. My buddy then told me he found my picture being used as his profile picture in a fishing group. What the heck?
It was a closed group, so he took a screen shot and sent it to me. I've since messaged the person and asked they take down the photo. I've also reported it to Facebook as a fake account, and we'll see how that goes.
Here's the original post I put up in 2014:

Either way, it's a good reminder to check the security settings on your Facebook profile. My guess is that someone created a fake Facebook account for some reason, and just happened to find my picture. It's still creepy and weird.
