WARNING--APPARENT FRAUD--Sẻccurƚy Faƈcẻbook

posted Jul 20, 2013, 11:16 AM by Info@ HelpAsNeeded
We just received a very-well socially-engineered notice on Facebook from "Sẻccurƚy Faƈcẻbook" that "Facebook has detected suspicious activity on your account and a security violation action. This problem can lead to permanent suspension or disabling of your facebook account." 

Included was a link to safetyfacebook DOT com, at which we were asked to provide our email address, password address, etc. Facebook indicated that 45 of our friends were also friends with Sẻccurƚy Faƈcẻbook, so presumably each of these friends received a similar notice.

Signs that this is a fraud:

- non-standard characters in "Sẻccurƚy Faƈcẻbook;"

- fact that Sẻccurƚy Faƈcẻbook appears as a person rather than as an organization;

- fact that "facebook" is lower case in associated website;

- fact that Safetyfacebook DOT com is a URL that was created two days ago, July 17, 2013.

IF YOU PROVIDED YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION, CHANGE YOUR ACCOUNT IMMEDIATELY.

NOTIFY FACEBOOK.
