A few weeks ago, General Cartel Ham's picture and a request to be added to my circle appeared on the Bell shaped Google & Notification icon.  Most of the time, if not all of the time, I ignore those requests thinking that if you want to follow me, you add yourself.

I don't know what you see on the Google & Notification when you open it.  This time I decided to add a few people and among them was General Ham.

When I saw his name and picture, my first thought was:  What the heck is  doing reading a garden blog and why does he want to get in touch with me?  A few bells went off!

I researched the General and he does exist; however, there are many scam alerts involving him.  This is how it goes:  The scammer is stealing his picture!  General Ham is a public figure and his picture is scattered all over the internet and it is very easy to steal his picture and transfer it.

I have not heard anything more from "General Ham".  Yeah, I am curious enough to check this out.  When you see something that does not sit right with you, weed it out.

Be cautious.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
