Facebook Scam – Received reports that your account has violated a policy

Scammers use a number of tactics to capture sensitive information, including free offers.  Facecrooks security warns users with a tactic of “fear” to take action or they might lose privileges if they do not respond.  As one must login to respond to this new phishing scheme, it can result in security compromise of one’s Facebook account.  It is important to remain cautious and only respond to legitimate requests.
