If you administer a Facebook page, I highly recommend you be leery of warnings allegedly sent from Facebook. I received this one today, it's the first one I have seen. Like most phishing scams, it looks pretty authentic.
The most important thing to look out for in these types of messages is the link. If it doesn't point to facebook.com/SOMETHINGHERE it is a scam. Links can also be sneaky because what appears to be facebook.com/SOMETHINGHERE could actually link elsewhere. By clicking the link and signing back in, you hand over your password to the scammer on the other end.
As a reminder, phishing is the activity of defrauding an online account holder of financial information by posing as a legitimate company. You have likely seen these in your email inbox before. Never click the link.
Don't be a victim
No business should ever send you a message with a link to change your password or log in to your account. Google has many images of examples of phishing. Be aware and avoid these so you don't become a victim.
An bonus tip is to have an additional administrator on your Facebook page. Should you ever get locked out of your account your colleague can login with his or her account to assist you.
