Fake facebook mail and account activation application


Today I found a post of my friend's wall urging others to Save their account. It was posted by an facebook application named "Account Activation". It stated that facebook is being slow and they need to close accounts of many users and asked to click on that app to save the account. Aakarpost says he received the similar type of e-mail urging to forward that to 15 friends to save my account. So, is this really sent by Facebook?

Definitely not. This is probably an attempt to stole private information or gather e-mail addresses for spamming. It was reported that the email contained Trojan(virus). Same can be with the application. So, please ignore these types of Fake e-mails and such facebook applications. If you find these applications, report them as spam by clicking report spam on their home. Don't open those e-mails. Here is how the wall post looked:

Fake facebook account activation

How can we say that the application is a fake one?
You may read the information about the Application by clicking on their wall which reads that " This application was not developed by Facebook."

What do I do if I fell for it?

Remove the application under application settings and don't click anything again. Block the app all together

Change your Facebook password immediately, and also your email password if it's the same.

@cindy, you change your password, remove application and report the application. Further, it may have installed Trojan. Scan your computer with updated anti-virus.

Thank you to all of you! Removed application, changed password and am scanning computer now.

I reported this FB yesterday and the application is still available and presumably suckering more victims. Why can't FB make it easier to report malware running on their own network and using the FB logo (in this case a modified version of the iPhone app icon). All I could find to report them for was "inapropriate content"

BTW, if you need updated malware protection and you run Vista or XP, MS now provides their Security Essentials programs free.

The application is back on Facebook again, if you get the chance report it, thanks! http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=197673517539&ref=mf
