Re: Facebook-Email Telling Picture on Album 32 dot Com? Scam???

said by Worried :

I just got a message from a friend on facebook telling me to go to album 89 dot com and look up my name. Is anyone reciving similar messages. Or is mine a completely different circumstance ?

I just got the same message from someone i haven't talked to in ages. When i typed it in it sent me to my fb login. . .but i was already logged in so it shouldve taken me straight to my page. Im assuming its a scam to hack fb accounts or its a virus of some sort

I just received the same Facebook Notification email from one of my FB friends asking: "hey, go to album89 dot com and search for your name then click on the first photo.. I bet you didn't remember that, eh?"

NOTICE THE URL:
ht tp://www.facebook.com.login.php-profile-signin-ilkr4div.album89.com/index.php

This is NOT a facebook url ... FACEBOOK.COM IS JUST PART OF THE SUB-DOMAIN. Notice the end of the URL and you will see the actual domain here that you are logging into with your private info is ALBUM89.COM - Also if you view source on the page you will notice that the images/graphics are being hosted from a 3rd party site: »3.bp.blogspot.com/-AOgsqP3Qut8/T···0/i3.png

I did not fall for it but is likely most people will I wonder what the purpose of this hacking attempt is?

Well I do hate to be conspiratorial, but I just got the "Album 89" message just after posting anti-Monsanto information on the "No On Prop 37" Facebook page, which is funded in part by none other than Monsanto and friends. It may be coincidental but I certainly want to shut down these agri-bullies with their big ideas about "replacing nature."

(I've only read some, so don't know where/if the two of you have finished, ...)

So semantics - as it applies to the lay person, aside, is it real or is it memorex?

same thing

@comcast.net
reply to Worried

i had the same thing don't put in your info. if by chance you did change your password on your facebook and your email. if you don't see the HTTPS:// before the website url then it is not secure like the page it redirects you too at album 89 dot com.

I received one, as well, it's spam. Whoever you received it from has probably been hacked, just delete it, otherwise if you go to the site, you may be hacked as well. Good luck, hope that helps!
