I have been seeing this one a LOT in the past week. I have gotten so many that I am just going to post the contents of the email once, but will post all of the email accounts that it is sent from.
This is a phishing scam. Since so many people use Facebook, they are hoping that just a small percentage of the people that they send this emails to will actually click on the links and update their info. What can they do with your Facebook info you ask? Well, there are a LOT of Facebook accounts that are being taken over by scammers who then will send Facebook messages to your friends telling them (as you) that they are in trouble and need money and ask people to wire them money. Think about it . . . even if they got every one of your friends to send them $100, they could make a lot of money.
