Hey there,

I'm not sure if this site can help me, but my facebook account just got hacked. I'm not sure how this happened since I'm a very basic and not very frequent user of facebook. All I use it for is to email and post pictures. I don't use any apps, games, etc.

Anyway, every single one of my friends was "forwarded" the following link from my account:

Don't tell anyone but there is a website sending out free iPhone 4G to
anyone that signs up, www.giveaway-madness.com That is where I got mine btw

Hello Clements88.. please give this page a read and see if it can help you. I would definitely change the password if I were you. http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=1009
