MSG:Your Facebook account requires confirmation! To avoid losing your account confirm your identity now:
Facebook users who click on the link in the message will be taken to the following fake Facebook website:
http://m.facebook.com--------secured-----confirm----- account-login--491840561.samanthagerrit .com/
Your Facebook account must be confirmed today in order to avoid disabling! This process is quick and must be done by all of our users as an extra security measure. If you fail to confirm your account today it will be limited and then disabled!
Confirm your Identity now
This why Facebook users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should instead, go directly to www.facebook.com or use Facebook's app to check their accounts for important notifications or updates if there are any.
Facebook users who have been tricked by the message are asked to change their passwords immediately.
