I don't know if anyone else has the issue.
But lately i get random friend invites of people that have no connection to me at all.
Never saw them, never been on servers i play on etc.

I was wondering if it is dangerous to add them?
Can they "obtain" my account info etc by accepting their invites?

Kind of wonder as getting an invite from people with the name abc54541987352 kind of make me wonder why they would add me...

Best advice is if it's not some one you know decline the invite

Earlier this week I got a random invite from someone I didn't recognize from anywhere. I looked them up on bf4db to see if I recognized any of their previous names. I didn't recognize any of those either, so I just declined the invite. That and the 100 limit is still a real pain in the rear.

Can't really see how they could get your account info through being friends with you on Blog, but I'm no hacker either.

no, that's not possible.


just don't accept randoms or full out privates, they don't have anything good to say anyways.

So long as you avoid clicking any suspicious links or giving them any information, you should be totally safe.

hah Speak of the devil, I just got an invite from someone named abc1947000277. They are ranked 00, 0 kills, 38 min played, 0 kills, 9 deaths.

The previous invite I was talking about was someone that appeared to be an actual person, as in they were in a platoon, had played the game for a little while and were ranked somewhere around 30-40.
