    Fake Facebook account cancellation e-mail request

    Attackers have created a fake Facebook email account cancellation request which prompts the user to click a link to confirm or cancel the request. If the user follows the link, they're asked to install a Java applet. The link then tells them that need to install a plugin to update their Flash player, but will instead receive trojan malware.

    Attackers are counting on the fact that Facebook users won't want to lose their contacts with family and friends and will be duped into clicking the link.

    I'd like to add to this thread which is about fake profiles. Fake facebook profiles have become commonplace on Facebook recently. Some use it to stalk people, impersonate a famous celebrity or even attracting minors.

    I got this article on my internet search and I'd like to share it on this site. 11 Tips to Identify fake profiles on Facebook

    I hope this helps out.
