Facebook scam spam

I received several Facebook scam emails this morning. Thers spam emails all had the heading - Off posted on your Wall Re: 77% OFF PRICES ID049433 - and the sender was Facebook Doctor Anderson Walsh. There are several facebook links on the email, which are, in fact, linked to medicaqci.ru. I haven’t followed the link, so no idea if it just takes you to an advertising page, it spoofs facebook to grab your username and password, or if it unleashed a worm or some other kind of malware into your machine. If you receive an Off posted on your Wall Re: 77% OFF PRICES Facebook email don’t follow any of the links either - simply delete it and move on with your day!

The email reads:

From:  Facebook Doctor Anderson Walsh [fbmessage+Allegra@facebookmail.com]

Subject: Off posted on your Wall Re: 77% OFF PRICES ID049433

The method used to arrive at that conclusion does not seem to be scientifically sound. I… I realise you are simply a spambastard and not deserving of any level of courtesy, but as I’m a nice chappie, you should know that the link that you supplied in your spam comment, doesn’t render correctly :) BM

Facebook Page Management…

Today is my mother’s birthday and you’ve given me a special post to share with her…. You miserable bugger! You’re giving your mother a post on someone else’s blog, about a facebook scam email for her birthday? You really are a thoughful son that a mother can be proud of! You’ll be giving spammers a bad name! :)
