Warning: Email Scams Targeting Facebook Users (Read Bogus Email)

According to sophos, more than 750 million Facebook active users are at risk of this latest bogus emails appearing to be from Facebook.

The message appears to be legitimate and can be deceiving as it notifies FB users that they had lost a message from one of their Facebook friends. However, once you click the link, you're redirected to a Canadian pharmacy site trying to pimp drugs after entering your Facebook username and password. With this, your FB account has been hijacked by the hackers and anytime soon will spread the bogus emails to your friends.

Here's one of the scam emails:

Lastly, if you are not sure about the link sources in your email or in your wall, I advise you not to click it. Please share this warning to your friends before they fall for tricks like this.
