Strange Biden/Harris fundraiser on Facebook

A post showed up in my Facebook newsfeed that was supposedly from the Biden-Harris campaign saying that today was Kamala’s birthday and would I like to make a donation? Since today is my birthday I almost took bait. But further research indicated that Kamala’s actual birthday is in October and I now suspect that it was a fake fundraiser on Facebook. I thought I had changed my Facebook profile settings last night to make my birthday private, but it didn’t work and today I received a lot of nice birthday wishes in spite of my efforts to keep a lower profile. I now wonder if the “coincidental” Harris birthday ask was related to that.

1. I would have spotted it as fake immediately because Kamala and I share the same birthday

in October.

But shouldn't you report this to facebook as fake? I am sure someone would have fallen prey and gave money to them if they are not careful.

3. It was a little surprise for me when I did some research on her when she was selected as VP.

I wanted to go early voting as a birthday present for her and I but unfortunately early voting in my state doesn't start until October 24 😢
