SCAM NOTICE - Your page is due to be deleted

Another Facebook scam seems to be doing the email rounds.

Supposedly from Meta saying that your account is about to be deleted.

The text will be something like this;

"Hi {your name here},

We regret to inform you that our team has detected repeated violations of our Community Standards associated with your account. As a result, we are required to notify you that your account is scheduled for permanent deletion. We understand that this may be disappointing news for yourself. However, if you feel that this decision is unjustified, you may submit an appeal by clicking on the link below:

>>Request Review<<

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we strive to maintain a safe and respectful community on our platform.

Sincerely, Meta for Business."

If you click the link it will eventually take you to a fake Facebook page where it will ask you to enter your login info.

Then, game over.

Notice the weird email its being sent from? An employee of Salesforce was the victim pf a Phishing scam which resulted in hackers being able to steal hundreds of thousands of email addresses. You can read more about this hack HERE.

So what do you need to do now?

Not much. Report the email as a phishing scam through your email provider and get on with your day. I recommend popping the kettle on and rewarding yourself with a biscuit.
