Beware of the fake email from “not-so-Facebook”

Categories Social Networking

It would seem absurd for some to regard this warning as some haven’t even checked their e-mails in centuries. Lol. However, an identity impersonating Facebook has been sending emails to people. This e-mail is purported to contain photos of the user’s friends wherein the user has been tagged or includes them. Victims of this unsuspecting email will just have to click on the link and… kaboom! (Sorry, it doesn’t blow up)

According to Naked Security, The emails contain the subject line, “Your friend added a new photo with you to the album,” and read as follows:

Greetings,
One of Your Friends added a new photo with you to the album.

You are receiving this email because you’ve been listed as a close friend.

[View photo with you in the attachment]

However, rather than photos, unsuspecting users of the social network are treated to a form of malware, Troj/Agent-XNN.
