Facebook Fake Password Reset Emails

If you receive an email from Facebook about resetting your password, just be careful because it might be a scam or a virus.

There is currently an email going around that asks you to run a .exe file to reset your password. The thing is that most websites will not ask you to run a application to reset your password.

Since I have received this email, I am going to post you all the details so you can watch out so you don’t get fooled.


This is a copy of the email that you may receive.

The actual sender however forgot about covering up their actual email address and IP address. But there is still no guarantee that these are correct. But you can find this information in the below information.
