Another Facebook Phishing Scam

Another Facebook Phishing Scam

Pretty standard stuff.

  • It’s been sent to “richard” by “”–doesn’t sound like facebook!
  • The active link in the message has an obvious typo (“request”).
  • Hover your mouse over the link and you’ll see it does not go to facebook.

Get a message like this one? Don’t click the link to check on the friend requests. Instead, delete the message, then log in to facebook as you ordinarily would to check for notifications.
