I dunno Jase, it looks like one of those pointless scary chainmails to me.
It seems a bit unlikely that you could be hacked or infected without downloading/installing software or adding a bad widget to your page.
But I suppose it's better safe than sorry.

Maybe they just want Richard and Ashley to be lonely?

that is a chain mail.. They need your IP address to do anything.. How do they get that through facebook?? Unless peeps are stupid enough to except an application request that they have created then theres that but why would you except something that you wouldnt know. But anyhoo it could be real so peeps take it as face value and remember to check before the click happy

happy thanks jase smile
