Facebook Abuse Department Change Password Email Scam

Every now and then I get emails from someone supposedly representing Facebook. Usually it says that my password was changed for safety reasons and that I can find my new password in the attached document. Usually the message comes with the caption "Facebook Abuse Department" from the email Thomas@facebook.com. The usual modus operandi of these kinds of messages is to shock you and get the better out of you, that there's an attached document you need to download immediately, that the message itself is addressed to multiple email addresses, and that the message's grammar is a wee bit off. Always observe these red flags and you'll be safe.

Anyway, here's the verbatim message of the Facebook Abuse Department Change Password Email Scam:

Dear client

Spam is sent from your FaceBook account.

Your password has been changed for safety.

Information regarding your account and a new password is attached to the letter.
Read this information thoroughly and change the password to complicated one.


Please do not reply to this email, it's automatic mail notification!


Thank you for using our services.
Your Facebook!

See how plain the message is? That's another red flag. No picture, no username, no nothing. This is also how the UPS, Fedex and DHL email scams work. Be careful, especially if you love your Facebook account. These scammers are just shooting blindly, they really don't know if you have a Facebook account or not.

Consider yourself warned.
