I'm getting messages in an e-mail account that I do NOT use for facebook saying that I've created a facebook account. Apparently my name is Germaine and people are already returning my friend requests. I have not clicked on any of the links in these e-mails because I assume it's some kind of scam. My fear is that if it is NOT a scam and someone really did use my e-mail to open an account that they can use the feature on facebook to send a friend request to everyone in my e-mail address book.
Is this a fishing scam? Or can someone open a facebook account using my e-mail account?
