This is the third one I've received in my email - all this week, and I deleted my facebook account several months ago. The links point to some site called ainshamsortho.com/fashionable.html

It might just be phishing for email verifications (you click and they know you exist and spam you), or it could be worse.

If you use windows live mail, outlook or oe you can see where the link points to in the status bar at the bottom, before you make the mistake of clicking it.

Jebus...good to know. I actually have my facebook notifications pointing to my hotmail account, which I never use now because of all those notifications (and because hotmail blows goat ball cheese...plus I'm too lazy to shut off the 247 notification options that facebook has).
