No, I Did Not Register Facebook Social within my Digg Profile

Received 7+ bogus spam emails in last 24 hours or so thanking me for registering Facebook Social Share within my Digg profile.

Each appear authentic in style (right down to the table, color, and font formating) and are arriving with one of two sender names:

Facebook Social
Facebook Verification

However, they are clearly fake (confirmed by simply logging into Digg directly without trying to go through these emails) and are coming via very different open mail relays with links actually pointing towards different equally suspicious (non-Digg/non-Facebook) destinations.
