    is that a conformation email? or just an invitation email from Facebook?

    if ur friends have Facebook they click for automatic invitation... i think thats what u received. Not that someone started fb account with ur id i checked... there is no such account with ur id...

    screenshots confirms that its a signup completion process...
    somebody who knows your email-id might have used it...

    I guess that's the last step to get the account activated...
    if u don't want to signup then don't respond to the mail..it will automatically gets disabled...

    Yes.. as said by Zangetsu & mithun_mrg do not click that link for completion of signup process...

    Also if u hav fb account with another email id then u can add ur other email id by clicking -- Account settings -- Email -- add another email, so that this wont happen again...

    The confirmation code is more important than the email.

    Unless you click the confirmation link, it wouldn't be a problem. Whoever is trying this, won't be able to access the facebook account.

    Someone keeps trying to reset my facebook password, I get 2-4 emails everyday saying I requested a new facebook password, but it doesn't matter unless I confirm it. So just ignore it. There's nothing you can do about it. You cannot even lodge an FIR as no offense has been committed. For all we know, someone might have typed your email ID by mistake.

    Once a person added my cell number on Orkut by mistake. I got a confirmation code. He had to call and ask me the confirmation code so that he could remove the number from his profile. of course he was my friend, otherwise I wouldn't have given the confirmation code.

    And make sure you never post screenshots without removing personal info from it. You are lucky that the mods are active here. Otherwise the person could have got the confirmation code from here and then could have used the facebook account with your email ID. To remove personal info, after you take the screenshot, open paint, paste it there. Then using the brush tool with a thick tip, just blacken the portion not to be revealed. Save this and then post the saved image.

    In fact, I would go as far as to say that you should actually create a facebook account with that email ID. This is the only way to prevent this from happening. And facebook has become so ubiquitious, you need to have a facebook account to prevent abuse even if you don't use it. Did you know that it is not possible to report a profile that is impersonating someone else unless the actual person is present on facebook?
