Heads up, compers! In order to investigate a technical issue, we've had to move some of the older threads from Game Over into a new category called 'Game Over Archives'. It'll be comps from before 2017, so shouldn't have too much impact on your day-to-day Forum experience. Thanks for your patience!

Just got two emails allegedly from Facebook, saying that I had requested a password reset (which I didn't) and to enter a code or click a link. Now that was ok, I'm never tempted to click any links in unsolicited emails. However, at the foot of the page was a note that I should report this to Facebook if I had not requested a password reset, and the link there did go to Facebook, but with a bit of an addition, the code they sent plus an id number plus other code. The latter worries me a bit, since it might be a hack that can compromise your Facebook account. Not sure, but just to let folk be aware and if you haven't requested a password reset, I would delete such an email. Here's the email:


Hi ,

Enter the following password reset code:

Alternatively, you can directly change your password.

Didn't request this change?
If you didn't request a new password, (link) let us know (link).
