Facebook phishing by

I've received news about a phishing attack on and if you are a facebook user such as me please read on...

If you get an email message that looks to be from Facebook with the subject, “Hello,” and featuring the text below, don’t bother clicking on the link included. Doing so takes you to a site called that mimics the look of the main Facebook login page, hoping to get you to sign in. Naturally, if you do that, the site will have access to your account and can send out more of these messages to your friends.

The message body will apparently read something like this (with YOURFRIEND being replaced by the name of a friend of yours):

YOURFRIEND sent you a message.

Subject: Hello

What is the aim of these phishers. How will it benefit them? I do not know how these phishers actually benefit from fishing
