Your Facebook Account Disabled

Clicking on the link in the malicious email message or post, will take you to a malicious Facebook app below:
https://apps.facebook.com /confirmsroom/

The app will display a fake Facebook sign-in page, which will ask you to log into your Facebook account in order to confirm. But, this is no confirmation and any information (email, phone, password) entered on the page, will be sent to the cyber-criminals.

Once these cybercriminals have your Facebook user name and password, they will use it to hijack your account and use it to send the same or other scams to your Facebook friends.

If you were tricked by the malicious email, post or app, or think you were, please follow the instructions below:
