Warning - Facebook Password-Stealing Scam

-- by Dave Johnson

I received an email that tricked me into giving up my Facebook account and password. I figured it out and changed it immediately, but not I have to also change the password everywhere else I used that combination... I get an email that someone has written on my wall. I go to see what is written about me, and it is exactly like the Facebook login page...

Here is the email:

Janis wrote on your Wall:

"Somebody wrote something really funny in their blog about you. everybody see it here http://evangelinafofipap.blogspot.com" [THIS TAKES YOU TO THE SCAM LOGIN PAGE. DON'T ENTER ANYTHING HERE]

To see your Wall or to write on Janis's Wall, follow the link below:

Thanks,
The Facebook Team

Note - I have changed my password everywhere since this happened.
