Re: Not convenient enough
For the standard user, I believe user awareness training to be a more efficient means of get security messages across. That is true. Security awareness trainings are the best way to go.

Re: Not convenient enough
This may be fine for security oriented and technology oriented folks I would agree with this, it would mainly be discarded since not easy to use.

Not convenient enough
This may be fine for security oriented and technology oriented folks, however to the typical facebook user this does not seem to a viable option to me. For the standard user, I believe user awareness training to be a more efficient means of get security messages across. Rerouting the user immediately and explaining what to look for, why they were targeted, and the overall risk.

Won't add value
This will help 000000.1% of Facebook users. Displaying emails sent in a place nobody knows, *after* they have been sent, is not going to produce enough juice to justify the squeeze.

p.s. your site doesn't allow us to login with Twitter or LinkedIn - doesn't work.
