    I would suggest either decline..or leave there hanging.I am not sure if FB is so stupid to give more work to their security team..what they are already not able to handle.
    Beside that i would suspect this might be some kind of new program that will take away you site..for free :)

    I'm pretty sure if Facebook wanted ownership of your page they'd just frickin take it! I don't think they would be asking you permission. I suspect this is someone pretending to be FB trying to steal pages from fools.

    I agree, FB would not ask you for permission.

    This very much looks like a scam. Especially the way that message is worded about "Facebook Security business".

    I would decline it for sure.

    Definitely a scam.

    Ignore it.

    Whatever you do, do not click that 'approv' button.

    Contact FB and report this. No one can create a profile and use 'Facebook' as the profile name, it wont get approved

    No way FACEBOOK will ask for approval. I agree with the folks. DECLINE! It's someone doing nasty things stealing something from us doing all the work! Damn pathetic people. Feel sorry for those who falls victim of this kind of evil deeds.

    DO NOT push anything..just leave it the way it is,my opinion.Might be a nice script...you can choose yes or yes.If you know what i mean.

    It is pure scam. Just create a business account (agency) named "Facebook", "Facebook security", "Facebook verify" and send requests for takeover. Such accounts have that option, in addition take account business page on ownership and administrators can not remove it.
