MSG: Please reconfirm your Facebook credential now:

Once the cybercriminals have gotten their potential victims' Facebook credentials, they will hijack their accounts and use them fraudulently. The cybercriminals will use the hijacked accounts to send phishing or malicious messages or posts to the owners of the hijacked accounts friends. Facebook users who have been tricked by the phishing scam are asked to change their passwords. For those whose accounts have already been hijacked are asked to click here for help to recover their accounts.

Facebook users should always go directly to www.facebook.com to sign-in and confirm their passwords or use the Facebook app on their mobile devices. They should never click on a link in an email, text or social media post to sign into their accounts. Doing this will prevent them from becoming victims of phishing scams.
