Oops: Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx’s account phished; Reporter falls for it, clicks on phishing link

Oh, dear. Charlotte’s Mayor Foxx’s Twitter account was hacked (or phished) yesterday afternoon.

Like Stephanie Cutter’s when she was phished, his Twitter feed started hawking body fat burners.

And the dreaded “did you see this pic of you?” direct messages.

Amy Cowman, an NBC reporter/anchor, did not heed the “do not click” warnings.

Oh, sweetie. Bless your heart.

Her account is all good this morning.

Make sure the “lots going on” does not including clicking on phishing links, no matter how anxious you are to see pics of yourself. You’re welcome.
