I closed my facebook account at least 5 years ago.
This morning I have had 2 emails from them saying I am having difficulty signing in.
How do I reply when its a `no reply´ email they sent it on?
I see the emails came from [email protected] yet when I click the reply it comes up with no reply??

I had an email from FB regarding how they use my data with the new law coming in. It wasn't my username on the email but was my email address. I replied to them stating just how good their security was if they couldn't get my username right. I'd just ignore it. If you closed your account whoever is trying to log in under your name won't get any info as there isn't any.

Yep, bin them Jan and wait for more intrusions. I deleted FB off my phone and now the battery lasts twice as long.

that e-mail address is a big giveaway that it's spam. anything from a genuine facebook e-mail would be @facebook.com. anything else - just delete

What I find extremely strange fats is I closed the account umpteen years ago and it said if I wanted to rejoin I would have to start/make a new account, so where did the information come from ?

Actually providing the header is genuinely from that address its legit.

https://www.whois.com/whois/facebookmail.com

and

https://www.facebook.com/business/he...08314478738382

I Can see why you would think it was spam though. Why they would use a different domain name I dunno.

Its possible someone accidentally tried to login using whatever user name you had Jan and your getting the email. I shouldnt worry about it. You can forward the email to me if you like and ill look at it.

interesting that FB have that domain as it just looks so spammy and why they would use a different one to facebook.com is just odd.

I think it could be a spoofed e-mail - as Barry says, the header info will tell - and the link "Log In with One Click" in the e-mail would be the real giveaway as to where that is redirecting - probably NOT a facebook domain and one used to steal login credentials.
