Apple warns iPhone users
do not answer calls from ‘Apple Support’
call ‘Apple Support’ when you need help
scammers employ caller-ID spoofing techniques so as to impersonate the real telephone number of the service they claim to be representing.

Hacked vs. Cloned (or Spoofed)
Please carefully distinguish between two terms:
Hacked means that someone logged into your account (and possibly modified its content). An appropriate response is to change your password.
Cloned or Spoofed means that someone copied its publicly visible features (profile and cover photos, intro, biography and birthday) to create a phony account in your name.
An appropriate response is to (1) report the phony account to Facebook mangement so they can take it down and (2) hide your list of friends from public view.

My previous site was designed using Apple iWeb. Apple discontinued the product. I have had to create a new website using different methods.
What I have chosen are templates from the internet as a way to experiment with web design.
