I have noticed people are receiving emails that attempt to trick facebook users into believing their facebook accountant is subject to an internet attack by hackers. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS.
This is an attempt to get people to download and install a computer virus to their computers.
Instead we recommend you delete such emails and DO NOT OPEN ANY ATTACHMENTS from sources you do not trust EVER.

Here is an actual email we have seen which is NOT FROM the REAL FACEBOOK.
NOTE: We made the fake email in RED text so you can clearly identify it.
