    I get these emails on a daily basis, but I find them on the Facebook security page under "See recent emails from Facebook" So how can they be a scam?

    I get these emails about 2 times a day. Luckily I dont have a facebook page so the scam was easy to spot

    Just received this in my email. I definitely didn't request a change.

    I received a similar message saying someone tried to log in to my account. It had buttons to report the user or say that it's me, but there were many "Â"s scattered about the email. These addresses were included: us@lolaca.club, reach@lolaa.site, rex@contacthouse.website, contact@facebksupport.website

    I just received this message and I do not and never have had a facebook account. Very weird. Fortunately I am running Linux so it is unlikely anyone will have been able to access my system.
