Scam Type: Phishing
Trending: June 2011
Why it’s a Scam:
Clicking on any of the phishing links will take you a page designed to look like the Facebook login page. The url is fuizuebooks[dot]com/update/index6.php (there are probably others).:
Never enter you login information when a web page redirects you without first double checking to make sure you are on the legitimate site. A better option is to bookmark the authentic page(s), and access the site directly.
On a side note, the same outfit behind this scam are running another Facebook phishing scam with the following wall post:

Poor Philip got a double whammy on his Facebook Wall by a friend who had their account hacked. Let’s hope he is aware of these scams and not a Happy Clicker!
