^ I purposely edited the link, so no one could click on it.

I am not 'Amna', nor did I try to sign up for Facebook.

Now I'm getting a Welcome to Facebook message, without even having clicked on the link !

I don't see any way to Cancel this crap ....

This message was sent to [edited] at your request.
Facebook, Inc., Attention: Department 415, PO Box 10005, Palo Alto, CA 94303

I'm just moving these messages to Spam, and hope that I'll see no more Facebook rubbish.

^ No, none.

I would have taken action to cancel this.

Facebook apparently operates a lot like Satan. ;)

A few months back, I got a similar email. After a bit of Googling, I couldn't find anything official from Facebook confirming that it could've been real, so I just ignored the message and made sure not to click any links.

Maybe someone is trying to sign up to FB with a fake account as you but didn't realise they had to confirm the address

^ I thought that too, but I got another Welcome to FB e-mail, without clicking the link.

Maybe I should change my password ... CHANGED !

Hey, Hum, that link still "worked" since it email portion was visible when I mouse-over the hyperlink.

Based on the latest hacking of Yahoo! accounts, somebody probably just DID register and activate a FB account with your credentials.

Your best bet:
1. Change your Y! Mail password,
2. Go to FB, click the Password Reminder (or Lost Password) function
3. Receive a new password link via email... change the FB acct password
4. Go into FB settings, clear it out, when put the account to sleep.

... otherwise, your account is being used for spam both on FB and in the real world.

Cheers.

Maybe its time to give a good scan with malwarebytes and change ALL of your important passwords

Thanks anyway.

I don't ever use Facebook -- never have.

Interesting -- since I marked the e-mails as Spam, they totally disappeared and there have been no others.

Changing to a stronger password may have helped too.
