Hi Everyone,,,Does anybody out there know what this is? I was cleaning up my contacts in my email account and found about 6 of these in my contacts..I have absolutely no clue what this is or where it came from. Does anyone know or has anyone seen this anywhere? Something tells me it means trouble.. email@example.com any help is appreciated..

I agree that it's most likely a phishing attempt masked as an email from facebook. During the time, I received several phishing emails pretending to be from Paypal. If you don't open the email and you delete it you should be safe. If this episode repeats you should report it to Facebook. I did that with one of the phishing attackers and they stopped (probably Paypal can be very "persuasive", and I'm sure so can be Facebook).

I would let facebook know about it and block it from contacting u... Could well be spam or worse! They need to know so they can stop or do something about it. I havent had anything like that before but have lots of spam which can't be helped. Many people can make up spambots now that make emails up and send crap that can have nasty bugs in.... Not cool!!

Oh, no, that doesn't mean any trouble at all! Facebook has a system in place where they generate unique email addresses for every post on the site. It lets people comment on statuses by just replying to the email notification they receive. It looks pretty strange but everything before the @ symbol is just the unique code Facebook gave that one status message.

As per my view, This email received from your Facebook account which was created by your email address. Here, you have to disable your Facebook account, change email of Facebook or stop notification from Facebook. It means, if you have deleted all your email contacts after all Facebook contacts will seem in your email contact book.
