Beware! Facebook Page Verification Scam

If you are a Facebook Page owner or admin, you might receive a message about the "Facebook Page Verification Program." It is touted as a new security feature, but it is NOT real. This hoax is designed to phish for your personal information.

The message will read something like:

"Dear Facebook User,

You are receiving this message to notify you about the new security feature from Facebook called "Fan Page Verification Program".

After many Fan Pages have been stolen lately leaving us no choice but Deleting them forever, we had to come up with an original solution about the Fan Page's Security..."

If you receive a message like this one, don't open any links or attachments.

Sophos has more information about this hoax in the article, Phishers try flattery with Facebook Page owners.
