Very Nice. Let’s see what really happens in the email. It is send from a host in Brazil sc.gov.br which seems to be a portal. Did not want a lot of personal data because I suppose they will ask for later when you will send mails claiming the donation. So far NO connection with Facebook.  Be aware of this and other kind of scams 🙂

Below is the complete source of the email. If you want to see the source of a message in Thunderbird you should go to View – Headers – and enable ALL. If you are using Outlook go to View- Message Header and click on it.
