    The trick to not getting your Facebook account phished is to not have a Facebook account in the first place. ;)

    Netcraft detects all but one listed. I get 3 warnings before getting to it (1 warning, then connect with FB button, then 2 more warnings and then the fake login).

    Just asking me to login would alert me, since I am logged in all the time, that is why I love FB login. :)

    Ahh ? An even better solution could be not connect to the Internet at all ? :D One needs to be more and more alert that is the only way going forward :)
