    I canceled my facebook account officially back in about 2005. I still got a message, LOL.

    Thanks for clearing this up. I have received 18 of these emails, sometimes 3 in a day a minute apart

    I just received same notice, contacted my tech guy immediately but decided NOT to click on the link - I'm so glad I didn't because it's a scam and I would have opened my site to hackers. It's the exact notice as the one above. Gabrielle L.

      I also got this very e-mail!

      And stupid me...I clicked on the "from here". Nothing happened- it took me nowhere. Then my email account started to get 20 spam every day.

      Has been about 3 days and they have been slowing down.

      I will go change my facebook password NOW and NEVER again click on these notices!

      THANKS for letting people know!

    I was hacked and now being harrassed by Russian s*x sites and multiple various yahoo and gmail users. My gmail account is over burdened with spam and it's going to force legal action on my part.

    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.
