We need your Facebook passwords and if you don't give them we will delete your accounts

A FACEBOOK scam, dubbed the cleverest yet, gets users to provide their passwords and financial details by accusing them of violating the site's policy and threatens to delete their account.

Experts said the recent assault designed to steal users' Facebook details is among the most sophisticated yet because it mimics the security procedures that sites use to defend against internet trolls and other bad behaviour online.

The scam comes in an email accusing the user of insulting or annoying another Facebook user and saying their account will be deleted in 24 hours.
