Facebook Friend Request is actually Phishing Scam


Facebook-looking message is actually a scam

Don't be fooled!

Here is the latest Phishing email I have received using Facebook as a cover. I have now received a half-dozen of these. These phishing attempts are trying to get you to give away personal sensitive information. Here are a few things to look at regarding these emails that is not normal.

1. The “”to”” address is not mine at the top or in the Facebook style disclaimer at the bottom.

2. There is no picture associated to the person in the message as in normal request messages.

3. The links do not link to Facebook.

4. The links can often cause security issues not like Facebook links.

 Final Word

Watch out for what emails come your way… Especially if you do not recognize who it is coming from.
