Earlier today in the office a colleague of mine shouted out for help. He said he received an email telling him  that his Facebook profile has been compromised. Someone was accessing it, and worse changed the Email for the user. With the help of another colleague who is an expert on online security and computers, they were able to sort it out.
We also had a similar experience from my previous company. However the email was a malicious one. First it says that your Facebook account has been hacked/compromised. And you need to click on a link, or download something. One guy opened it, and there a spyware was infesting his system. I was able to fix his spyware temporarily.
