Watch out for this account impersonating me on Facebook

It was brought to my attention over the weekend that someone’s set up an account on Facebook that’s impersonating me, sending out friend requests and even asking for personal information. This is more than annoying—I’m so upset thinking that someone could have their money or identity stolen through this scam.

Mochimochi Land is a Facebook page, not a personal account, so you would never receive a friend request from me on Facebook using that name. The Mochimochi Land page is administered by me using my real name, Anna Hrachovec. (I don’t encourage people to friend me on FB, just because I rarely post anything on my personal account.)

I’m so sorry to anyone who is getting spammed by this scammer. It would be a favor to me if you would report them—apparently the more people who do so, the more attention it my get from FB admins and hopefully that will help get it taken down sooner. But I’m reluctant to link to the scam page from here—I don’t want them to target my website next. So please just beware if you come across it and watch out for these kinds of scams in general!
