The emails are entirely false and not coming from Facebook. The scams are, in fact, designed to steal credit card numbers and social media accounts. When someone has been phished, their account will often start automatically sending messages or links to a large number of their friends. These messages or links are often advertisements telling friends to check out videos or products. If your Facebook account is automatically sending out spammy messages or links, check and improve your security.
