Popular social networking Web site Facebook has been targeted yet again by new phishing scam. According to security firm Sophos’ Nake Security blog, Facebook users have been receiving phishing emails that are “threatening to delete users’ Facebook accounts unless the victims pass along their account details within 24 hours.”

The security firm said in an official post that the phishing emails are falsely accusing Facebook users of violating policy regulations by annoying or insulting other Facebook users. The allegations are then followed by a request that asks users for their private Facebook details including login particulars and part of recipients’ credit card numbers, the Times of India reported.

Warning users, the blog post said the emails were entirely phony and were not coming from Facebook. “Social media venues would not request financial information, nor would they request login details.”
