facebook phishing first time experience

This mail sneaked into my inbox today. (outlook suck!) At first glance, it looks like a real message from facebook team, but if one is careful enough, should spot that the sender’s domain is actually @facebookmail.com, but not @facebook.com. Moreover, try hover your cursor to the little green box, you’ll then know it attempt to redirect you to a phishing site *hfglty.uk.com*.

How to protect yourself from this kind of fraud? Besides the 2 ways I suggested above, adding the plugin SiteAdvisor to your browser is a no-brainer. SiteAdvisor helps to block all suspicious sites, even you mistakenly click a link inside a spam mail.
