Facebook Allows Users To Report Phishing Scams

Phishing has been around for a long time now, and it gets worse everyday. People all around the world have issues with phishers that try to extract credit card info and other personal information through facebook, twitter, and/or email accounts by pretending to be a real person or service. To combat this, Facebook set up a system where users can send a report to phish@fb.com. Facebook said on its blog that reports from users will help them investigate and request for browser blacklisting and site takedowns where appropriate. Facebook already has an internal system that can find out when an account has been hacked and take down the site almost immediately.
