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.

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.
