<< Warning – Avoid Getting Phished >>

What The Word “Phishing” Means.

In the field of computer security, Phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Communications purporting to be from popular social web sites, auction sites, online payment processors or IT administrators are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public. Phishing is typically carried out by e-mail or instant messaging, and it often directs users to enter details at a fake website who’s look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one.

On facebook and other social networking sites victims are often sent phishing links via inbox, chat messages or wall post. These communications appear to be from friends in the victims friends list or even from that social networks staff. However, the messages are never sent to the victim by those parties.

**What to do if you have become a victim of Phishing On Facebook.

If you become a victim of Phishing while on facebook or find a phishing link directly on the platform, the links below will help you recover your account and report the incident.

<< 30 Fake “Facebook Security” Fan Pages >>

The attached photo shows the URL’s of 30 Fake Facebook Security Fan Pages. I have chosen to provide the URLs in the form of a picture to help reduce the chances of any users visiting the pages and inadvertently “Liking” and or “Joining” them. These pages do nothing but provide scam artists with the means to steal Facebook Accounts. If they are not actively doing it, they will end up doing it sooner or later. These pages are not affiliated with the real Facebook Security and have been created by “Joe Scammer”. If you are sent a link to one of these pages via: Email, News Feed, Chat, Facebook PM, Web Link or any other form of communication please do not respond to the communication. Instead, report the communication as spam/ Phishing and then immediately DELETE IT.

<< ALERT >>
Be on the lookout for FAKE Facebook notifications via email. I received the one shown in the attached photo either last night or this morning. It’s a pretty good fake, but if you know what to look for, it’s easy to spot as a fake..

Note the FAKE Facebook notification in this Photo leads to Pharmacy Spam. If you get it too, mark it as spam and delete it..

The Attached photo contains 11 spam messages I caught floating around on Facebook in the last hour. Every message in the photo IS SPAM and if YOU should happen to see ANY of them pop up in your news feed, DO NOT CLICK on ANY of them. They either lead to viruses, Bogus Surveys or something else you don’t want to get involved in.

SCAMS = “Stop Clicking All Malicious Shit”, or you will be sorry. 🙂
