Alert : Fake Facebook Email

This morning I got an email in facebook, saying forward this message to atleast 15 people to show urself as active facebook user. So, facebook will not delete your account.

Email was quite interesting as it says "Facebook is recently becoming very overpopulated,there have been many members complaining that Facebook is becoming very slow. And reason is that there are too many non-active Facebook members and, on the other side, too many new Facebook members.

Hence, mail is suggeting us to send this following message to our friends, what a rubbish ? This fake facebook message has been circulating all around the world.

Email was like this:
Facebook is recently becoming very overpopulated,there have been many members complaining that Facebook is becoming very slow. Records show that the reason is that there are too many non-active Facebook members and, on the other side, too many new Facebook members.

We will be sending this message around to see if members are active or not. If you are active please send to at least 15 other users using Copy+ Paste to show that you are still active. *Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks will be deleted without hesitation to create more space.*

Send this message to all your friends and to show me that you're still active and you will not be deleted.

Founder of Facebook,
Mark Zuckerberg
I just want to inform you that this was a fake email, don't waste your time by sending such type of message. These days, many such email, wall post has been seen in facebook, My suggestion is that, just discard those message and wall post and don't click those link, they might harm your computer.

Note: You may have read 'What happen to your facebook after you die'? Go though it, facebook is saying that they will keep all the pages  although after your death. Then what's the meaning of such type of email ? Someone is making you fool. Don't run after those message, those are just a fake facebook message. If you have any confusion, you can always refer to facebook's blog for official announcement.

If it was an official announcement, you could have get official email from Facebook, in your email inbox, not in your facebook inbox. So, I request you, not to forward such nonsense message to your friends and family.

  3. Ha ha, yap totally fake
    But that's not the way people should sent chain mails, it's a better idea to report spam and file a free suit to the sender, I guess.
