Warning about story with malware

.
There's a story shared on Facebook tonight,
.something about P's hair.
I stupidly clicked on it then got a flurry of pop-ups trying to sell me software.

I had to reboot my Android phone.
.
Be careful out there.

We had fun, didn't we?

No Apple for me, after Apple's lax security allowed a Vietnamese app developer to enter several hundred accounts, including mine.
The first time, he bought $275 worth of his own apps on my account.
I complained to Apple and although I saw proof that Aople knew what has happened, they told me to take it up with my credit card company.
I had my computer checked. I had no malware or keystroke logger on my machine.
.
I changed my iTunes password, via a different computer and internet server -- and guess what. I got hit AGAIN for even more.
.
I hadn't even logged in to iTunes for months except for that one password change and communications about the problem.
.
Again, they told me to complain to me cc company.
.
It was obvious that Apple had been hacked but they kept the story quiet to preserve their false veneer of "security". But you can Google and find proof.
.
They are no safer than anyone else and my experience is rhat they are not honest.
.
.
So yeah.
