Beware Of Fake Facebook

Reader Eric says he got a fairly realistic-looking Facebook phishing email and wanted to warn others not to click.

Eric says:

Today I received an email from facebook saying someone tagged me in a photo. It looked like a facebook email. I click it and then noticed the URL was not, so I wanted to email you this to warn readers of the consumerist to be careful of fake facebook urls!

Thanks, Eric. Always be careful when you’re clicking links in emails. In fact, it’s not a terrible idea just to stop doing it.
