    Some of you guys, Having big pages may have got this NOTIFICATION

    Now , Accepting this will get your page moved to that guy's account ,
    Here is a tip , I got from FB SUPPORT , After I contacted them 1 week ago

    MOST EASIEST METHOD TO AVOID THIS IS,
    CHANGE YOUR PAGE CATEGORY FROM BUSINESS TO ANY OTHER CATEGORY.
    THIS IS NOT A HACK , IT IS A GENUINE METHOD INTRODUCED BY FACEBOOK TO TAKEOVER YOUR NON OFFICIAL BUSINESS PAGES OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTIES AUTOMATICALLY.

    Stay Safe and GOOD LUCK

    Our 1,5M+ page was targeted by this scam earlier today, but is not listed under the "business" category, so unfortunately I don't think it's the business category only that is concerned :(

    Got this message earlier, and it was right after trying to get a page verified, so very very fucking sneaky. Something struct me as odd about having them need ownership to verify the page, though I never seen it before. Lucky my partner came across something saying it was a scam.

    DO you believe that FB will confirm that somebody is able to hack their system,with sending message to the owner of any page and taking over it through their FB page admin area?What do you think what would happen with FB if they say,yes we know the issue that somebody is able to hack our system??It would be a huge in the media...and would drop the price of their FB stocks...and so on.
    Don't take their word for granted.

    Who said FB has confirmed it ???
    Fb has not confirmed it yet but it is an option MISS USED , same as the Suggest an Edit option was missused to change page names after the limit of 200 likes and then invite by email option in pages admin panel to add a hidden admin.
    All the tricks out there, Are EXPLOITED OPTIONS PROVIDED BY FACEBOOK IT SELF.

    Category page does not matter. A business account can apply for ownership of any page.
