Facebook Friend Request Hoax

Scam alert: If you receive a message on Facebook saying ‘Hi….I actually got another friend request from you’, it’s a hoax.

Well, another extremely irritating “Friend Request” hoax is now making the rounds on Facebook.

Luckily, it’s very easy to avoid falling for this one.

All you have to do is ignore any messages you receive via Facebook Messenger, Chat or IM that read like this: 

“Hi….I actually got another friend request from you yesterday…which I ignored so you may want to check your account. Hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears…then hit forward and all the people you want to forward too….I had to do the people individually. Good Luck!”

In short, this message is a hoax.

The people sending it out didn’t really receive friend requests from the folks they’re forwarding it to. They’re sending it out to all their friends simply because the message tells them to forward it.

Of course the people they forward the message to don’t realize it’s a hoax. They believe their accounts really are sending duplicate friend requests to their friends.

Ship Station Not Importing Orders to Miva

Ship Station Not Syncing with Miva after Two Factor Update

Some users may experience issues with their Ship Station account not syncing to Miva after the latest 9.12 update with Two-Factor Authentication.

If you run into this, there are articles on Ship Station’s Website (Orders Not Importing to Miva) but you will actually have to contact Miva Support to have them make an exception to the user that is connecting to Miva in order to bypass the Two Factor Authentication and/or email login from device. I attempted all other means before contacting support like:

a) Reinstalling Ship Station Module
b) Making the user an admin then reducing the user back to just basic auth user
c) Updated Miva Engine
d) Restarted Server, Apache, Etc.

Save yourself some time and just contact Miva Support.

Hope this helps someone else.

If you need help with this, you may also contact us and we can take care of this for you on as well at our hourly rates.
