SCAM ALERT: Facebook messages just came to a mailbox I don’t use for Facebook

QUICK HIT:  I just got an email from “facebook” with the usual annoying “You have notifications pending” but it came to an account that I don’t use for Facebook.

The link is to indonesianfilmfestival.com.au/trace/a/b/c/d/ and the actual sender address, you can see in the picture is q7frrf4s6rc9 (AT) async.norma.no.  Norma.No is the legitimate site of a Scandinavian industrial firm, so clearly something’s gone a wee bit amiss in their IT somewhere.

Anyway, for all you happy/active Facebookers out there, take some care and check sender fields, mouseover/hover over the links in those supposed FB emails, or of course, better yet, don’t click ANY links in emails and go log into FB yourself if you have notifications to see.  Screenshot below so you can see what not to trust.
