I’m getting tons of “Facebook Account (blah blah)” messages from scammers trying to get me to click and provide my password and all. I’ve clicked on several of these to mark them as spam, but they keep getting through. Near as I can tell, the scammers are sending the spams from Facebook itself or fooling a mailer to do so since they come from @facebookmail.com – the same address good notifications come from.
Here is an entry from the log:

Is there any way to get Spamsieve to kill these but not messages from family and friends? I’ve got a second mail rule running after spamsieve’s rules to send them to trash, but that only works when the subject is the same. I could turn off all facebook notifications, but I don’t check it a lot and family uses it. Ugh. I suppose I could email Facebook support and tell them to not allow usernames with “update” in them (scammers would change the names, I guess… never ends…)
Thoughts and ideas?
