Scam alert Facebook

Recently I started to get email from “facebook” that I have messages waiting in my facebook account I need to answer.

Curiosity got the cat too and many people click on the link thus giving their password to the scammers.

Never ever click on links that comes from places like these. Facebook, AOL, Your Bank, Twitter, Myspace, Google, or any similar large companies. Never!!!!  Always go to their website and log in there to check your mesages or any info about your account!

So I’ve decided to see who is the one that would send me a message like this because Facebook don’t do this for sure.

How to check the origins of email messages? Well, here is how you do it.

Before you open your email right click on the title. Click “properties” and than click “Details” and copy that entire text “right click your mouse and select all and copy”.

Type into google “email trace” a bunch of results will come up and I usually click on the first one which is This here Paste the copied text into the window and hit “trace email sender”  A new window comes up showing you the location. There you find  the country, city, etc and the  Longitude and Latitude information.

Next go to (google maps)  In the search bar type in the longitude, than leave a space and type in the latitude and hit enter. Now you see the street where the email was sent from.  That might not be the street where the sender is but the nearest switching station but you get the location anyway.

The text in this particular facebook email says ”

You haven’t been back to Facebook recently. You have received notifications while you were gone.
