Beware of Facebook “Fan Page Verification” Scam

Do you have a Facebook page for your business?

If so, beware! There’s a new phishing scam that is targeting admins and page owners, according to Hoax Slayer

The scam works like this; the user receives an email, which purports to be from Facebook Security, telling them about a new security feature for page owners called the “Fan Page Verification Program.” The email explains that to complete the process, the user must choose a 10-digit number that will be assigned as a security code. It threatens that if you do not choose a code, your page will suspended because it is “not considered safe for the wide audience.” The link provided at the end of the email brings the user to a fake “Fan Page Verification Program” website, where they are prompted to enter their Facebook login details and the 10-digit code. However, this is nothing more than an attempt to steal Facebook account details. If you receive an email like this, BBB recommends that you: Do not click any links in the email Delete the email Keep your virus software up-to-date
