Tyrel Wolfe of Idaho was just a normal 18-year-old. His life up until this point had been normal \u2013 some would say stiflingly so \u2013 at least by comparison of what was to come. One day he logged into his Facebook account to find a strange friend request. It was from someone in the Philippines, someone that he had never met.\nThis isn’t unusual of course. Spam friend requests like this happen all the time on Facebook. Tyrel just deleted the friend request and got on with his life. He had no idea that this particular “spam-bot” would prove to be rather persistent.
