Warning: watch out for fake facebook comment notifications

2 replies
In yet another variation of typical phishing scam tricks to get you to open shady email, phishers have been sending fake facebook notifications that someone commented on your picture or post. Hover over the link and make sure your bottom screen indicates facebook or other FB properties. These phishing scams are getting old. Alternatively, you can use Gmail to filter your email. They have great phishing filters.

    Another popular scam seems to also be people stealing
    your Facebook picture and creating an account in your
    name and contacting your friends to subscribe.

    There is never an end to these scams.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I don't pay any attention to FB notifications that come in my email. If it's for real, it will appear when I log on to FB. These fake emails such as "friend requests" and "you have a message" have been coming for months, if not years.
