Watch Out for Email from Social Networking Sites

April 1, 2009

Facebook has replaced MySpace as the most popular social networking website. At least for now. That’s always changing. But no matter which social networking website you use, you probably get e-mail notifications from it. For example, you might get an e-mail from Facebook that says you have a new¬†friend request from someone. Be aware that many spammers are sending fake e-mail alerts that look like they are from Facebook and other social networking sites, but they aren’t.

 

So when you get one of these e-mail alerts from a social networking site, whether you think it’s legitimate or not, don’t click on any links in the e-mail. Instead, simply go to that website, login to your account, and take care of it that way.
