None of us here can help you with that, only FB can. Contact them thru their help page and explain the situation. If you are convincing they will give you another set of friends to recognize and maybe you will have more luck. And the first thing you should do is to severely trim you friends list - leave less than 100 and this situation will not repeat itself.

    Phishing continues to be one of the most significant security threats facing Internet users. During 2007, scammers distributed millions of phishing scam emails that targeted many different entities. Phishing attacks are sure to continue in 2008 and scammers will use such attacks to steal money and identities from many new victims around the world. Armed with a little knowledge about how phishing scams work, however, you can ensure that you do not become one of these victims. phishing-scammer.jpg
    Phishing scammers continue to find new victims all around the world

    A phishing scam is one in which victims are tricked into providing personal information such as account numbers, passwords and credit card details to what they believe to be a legitimate company or organization. In order to carry out this trick, the scammers often create a "look-a-like" webpage that is designed to resemble the target company's official website. Typically, emails are used as "bait" in order to get the potential victim to visit the bogus website. The emails use various devious ruses to trick readers into clicking on the included links, thereby opening the bogus website. Information submitted on these bogus websites is harvested by the scammers and may then be used to steal funds from the user's accounts and/or steal the victim's identity.

    Phishing scam emails are created to give the illusion that they have been sent by a legitimate institution. Emails may arrive in HTML format and include logos, styling, contact and copyright information virtually identical to those used by the targeted institution. To further create the illusion of legitimacy, some of the secondary links in these bogus emails may lead to the institution's genuine website. However, one or more of the hyperlinks featured in the body of the email will point to the fraudulent website.

    Links in phishing scam messages are often disguised to make it appear that they lead to the genuine institution site. The sender address of the email may also be disguised in such a way that it appears to have originated from the targeted company. Because they are sent in bulk to many recipients, scam emails use generic greetings such as "Dear account holder" or "Dear [targeted institution] customer". If an institution needed to contact a customer about some aspect of his or her account, the contact email would address the customer by name.

    A gmail Keeps appearing on my apple post site asking for my password. This is not my account. What should I do?

    I am assuming you are getting this when you are signed into Gmail.
    I found these help items:Someone changed your password
    If you suspect that someone else knows or has changed your password, please reset it so nobody else can sign in to your account. To do so, just enter your username on thepassword-assistance page.
    Account username:
    • For Google Accounts without Gmail: the full email address you used to create your account.
    • For Google Accounts with Gmail: everything before ''
    If you think someone has access to the email address associated with your Google Account, please change the password for your email as well. Learn more about keeping your account secure.
    If you're unable to reset your Google Account password, and you can't sign in to your account, you can fill out the account recovery form.
    About phishing
    A phishing website or message tries to trick you into revealing personal information by appearing to be from a legitimate source, such as a bank, social network, or even Google. If you receive a suspicious message, do not provide the information requested. We've included some tips to help you recognize phishing and keep your account secure.
    Think before you click
    Pay close attention to sign-in screens.
    Cyber criminals can use links in emails, tweets, posts and online advertisements to direct you to fake sign-in screens, where they can steal your password. Only sign in to your account when you are certain you visited the real site directly. Check the Internet address to be sure.
    How can I recognize phishing?
    You should always be wary of any message that asks for your personal information or messages that refer you to a web page asking for personal information. If you receive this type of message, especially from a source claiming to be Google or Gmail, please don't provide the information requested. Google will never send unsolicited messages asking for your password or personal information, or messages containing executable attachments.
    Messages or websites phishing for information might ask you to enter:
    • Usernames and passwords
    • Social Security numbers
    • Bank account numbers
    • PINs (Personal Identification Numbers)
    • Full credit card numbers
    • Your mother's maiden name
    • Your birthday
    What should I do when I see a phishing scam?
    Most importantly, never reply to suspicious emails, tweets, or posts with your personal or financial information. Also, don't fill out forms or sign-in screens that link from these messages.
    Most email providers, including Gmail, allow you to report suspicious emails and phishing scams. To report phishing in Gmail, click the drop-down arrow next to "Reply" and select "Report phishing."

    Why did this web address (www fb me) charge my checking acct. without authorization?

    The dot ME is officially set for the Government of Montenegro by ICANN. Unfortunately it can also be used for a variety of personal sites as well and this is usually associated with scammers and phishing attacks. It would appear that someone setup the domain to trick people into thinking it was the real Facebook page when in fact it was actually a scammers site. I would think that you would want to contact the bank and either cancel the abused account and create a new one, but definitely make the bank aware that they were unauthorized transactions, the bank may be able to return the funds to your account. In any event make it a habit of checking the address (in the address bar, usually at the top of your browser, where the etc. is displayed) and be mindful of the letters after the dot. look for .com, .edu, .gov, .uk, .biz etc. it should be something that you have seen or heard of before. If not, DO NOT PROCEED TO THE PAGE, until you are sure of where you are going. Hope this helps.
