Watch out for phish offering to "get you back on Facebook"

This morning I got a “getting back onto Facebook” email spammed to me. Since my Facebook was working normally I knew it was spam. Fortunately, AOL had hidden the links so nothing in the email could “execute”. But it appears to be another kind of phishing, an attempt to get personal information or perhaps access to you Facebook account so that it can abuse it.

By the way, I get a phishing attempt regarding Bank of America almost every other day.
