A new Facebook phishing scam that attempts to extract personal information from Internet surfers is making its way around the Web.

The fake e-mail, brought to my attention by my Hearst Connecticut colleagues Tim Bleasdale and Lynn Schnier, prompts e-mail recipients to click a link in an effort to update their accounts.

Instead, the link directs users to a Polish Web domain.

This e-mail should be immediately deleted, and obviously not clicked.
