I just recently got this message from several (non-english) Facebook friends:

Topic: Look at this

Body: goldbase.be


The link leads to an (obviously fake) FB-like Login page. Phishing, that's for sure, but what's the point in getting FB passwords?

Also, I can't find anything about it on google. Is this s very new one?

Same as lots of the email phishing--the lads will change the facebook page to say the user is in trouble, then send a message to all of the vics facebook contacts saying he/she is stranded in a foreign country and needs money now to get home.

Not necessarily. It could also be used to send out malware or just to deface it.
