Facebook users who have received emails like the one below, which claim their passwords were recently reset are asked not to click on the link in them. This is because the fake emails are phishing scams being sent by cybercriminals who are attempting to steal their potential victims' Facebook account credentials. Therefore, Facebook users who have been tricked by the fake and phishing emails are asked to change their password immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.

    NEVER click on a link in an email telling you there's something wrong with one of your accounts, whether it be social media, email, banking/credit card, Etsy / eBay, or wherever. Go directly to the site under your own power and check things out. You probably should change your password while you're there just to be safe, but do it after you log in, NOT from a link in an email.
