Fake Facebook e-mails being sent today!

Hello everyone!  Pass this on to your Facebook Friends so they can won’t fall for this scam.

Earlier I wrote a couple of articles about Phishing eMails and how to spot them. Today I just received a phishing mail posing as a Facebook security mail.

The Bad Guys did a great job of making it look just like a real Facebook letter (see figure below). Too bad they sent it to an eMail address that I do not have on Facebook!  This particular phish actually has all of it’s click-able links going to a european site called hofnet.50webs.com, a site with a questionable history.

Computer Break-In May Have Your e-Mail

Here’s something you need to know if you use the Internet to do any personal businesses.

On April 2th businesses that use the e-mail marketing company Epsilon have been warning their customers their name and e-mail addresses may be in the hands of hackers.

JP Morgan-Chase, U.S. Bank, TiVo, Disney Destinations, Robert Half Recruiters, Capital One, Best Buy, Wallgreens, and Kroger to name a few have your e-mail and other information handled by Epsilon, a marketing company.

The warnings are to let customers be on the lookout for fake e-Mails asking for your passwords and other personal information (this is called “Phishing”).

Ironically, Epsilon just issued a release days before the security breach about what they do with your information. You can read it on http://www.btobonline.com/article/20110331/EMAIL06/303319999/getting-the-right-people-companies-into-email-database

If you are concerned about your whether your bank or online store uses Epsilon and if your personal information is compromised, call them up on the phone and ask.
