Beware of “Your Unread Messages Will Be Deleted” Facebook Scam!

This is a precautionary blog post for our readers, especially those who use the social networking site Facebook.

An old online scam seems to have started doing fresh rounds on the Internet. Online scammers are sending emails to users claiming that their unread messages will be deleted from their Facebook account and urge them to view their notifications.

Unread messages will be deleted soon
 

These emails appear to have been sent by Facebook Administration, and notify users of their inactivity in their account.

Here’s what may happen if you click any button or link in such emails:

– Redirection to websites that may try to sell you products via credit/debit card transaction.

– Redirection to websites that may steal your personal or financial information.

– Redirection to compromised websites that might automatically drop a malware on your system.

Advice for our Readers

– Do not trust any unwanted or unexpected emails

– Avoid clicking links or downloading attachments embedded in such emails

– If you have any concerns about your Facebook account, log into the site by typing the URL in the address bar

– Always verify such information from multiple sources before acting on it

– Spread the information among your family and friends who use Facebook

Stay safe!

yes all social web sites should be opened by logging in their respective URLs. So many software downloads and updates are also fake and they steal ur information. Please while accepting the download agreement, please be very careful in acceptin Thanks

Thanks BRO! Yet to know, if such redirection (by any sites aswell) goes to any online shopping web and thereafter purchasing occurs by netbanking or debit/credit card under 3d secure system, is there any risk??

Rahul Thadani

Reply to  Rajeev Asthana

Hi Rajeev,

Yes there is risk involved here as one can never know which site one is on. Creating a 3D secure system can easily be achieved by malicious parties and creating fake pages which look real is one of the simplest things to do. So it is best to not carry out financial transactions on pages that you are redirected to from clicking on a link somewhere. Instead, visit that link on your own through official channels. It will take a few seconds more but it can potentially save one from disasters.

Regards.
