"Facebook Your Page Has Recently Been Flagged Because Of Unusual Activity" Scam

The email message below, which claims the recipients’ Facebook pages have been flagged because of unusual activity, is a phishing scam created to steal Facebook users’ usernames and passwords. The email message, which appears as if it came from "noreply@ fb.com," was actually sent by cyber-criminals and not Facebook. The cyber-criminals behind the scam spoofed the email message to make it appear as if they came from Facebook, although it was sent from another email account.

The link in the email messages will take the potential victims to a fake Facebook website, where the potential victims will be asked to sign in with their Facebook username and password. If the information is entered on the fake website, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the scam. Once the cyber-criminals have received their victims’ login credentials (usernames and passwords), they will use it to hijack their Facebook accounts.

Victims of the Facebook scam are asked to change their Facebook passwords immediately, and if they are unable to change their passwords, they should click here for information on how to recover their accounts.

It is important that Facebook users remember never click on a link to sign into their accounts, because this will help protect them from phishing scams. They should instead, go directly to www.facebook.com in their web browsers and sign in, if they are not already signed in. This will ensure that the recipients are the legitimate Facebook website and not some other fake website created by cyber-criminals. Once Facebook users are logged into their accounts, Facebook will display alerts or other notifications to them, if there are any.
