Phishing Attack on Facebook - VERIFY ACCOUNT

There is a new round of phishing attacks going around Facebook. DO NOT CLICK IT. You will get a wall post from your friends.

The message goes something like:

In order to PREVENT SPAM, I ask that you VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT. Click VERIFY MY ACCOUNT right next to comment below to start the process…

DO NOT CLICK VERIFY MY ACCOUNT. It leads to a third party URL, specifically: “plucketenhe.info, creepsweepers.info, pelorak.info, ”

Again, this is a phishing attack. It’s in my opinion one of the most well written ones to date.

If you are a VICTIM:

If you are a victim, please immediately REMOVE the wall posts you made on other people’s walls. Simply visit their walls and click remove over your text. You can find it by moving your mouse over what you wrote, and an “X” will pop up in the area surrounding your text. Click the X and select remove post.

If you are a receipient, please immediately REMOVE the wall post that was made on your wall.

Thanks.

All the best,
