This is one of those things that I don’t want to blow out of proportion, but I’ve heard enough weirdness in a day to suggest you go out and take a look. Earlier today esteemed twitterer Saianel mentioned that his accounts had unusual entries in the phone number field. This has been corroborated by many people since then.
Everyone should check their RedBird accounts. System bug populated unknown phone numbers in my profile. Accounts hacker? I deleted them all

In unrelated news, a thread started up on the forum about people regarding IRS tax refund fraud. These bastards are filing returns in your name and asking for payment to be remitted via electronic transfer. There was a great tip from a member that you can demand a PIN from the IRS for eFiling that should put the breaks on these people. Head on over here to get one. UPDATE – seems that the Identity Protection PIN is actually only available ‘pre-emptively’ only for residents of Florida, Georgia and DC Here.
Stay safe – and follow Saianel, he’s very funny for an American.
